Snow Gums are the classic alpine tree of the Australian High Country. And they're now at risk!
The species can survive fire. However, climate change driven fire seasons are leading to more frequent fire, which is causing more death of trees and changes to forest structure.
We are on the verge of losing the landscapes that we spent decades protecting.
In recent decades, climate-fuelled bushfires have devastated huge areas of the Snow Gum forests. More than 90 percent of Snow Gum habitat has been burnt at least once in the last 20 years.
Send an email to Hon Steve Dimopoulos and the State government to take steps to protect the iconic Snow Gum forests.
