In Australia, tree hollows are a crucial resource for over 300 animal species. Recognizing the importance of maintaining tree hollows in the landscape, forest management agencies retain hollow-bearing trees for the conservation of hollow-dependent species. Most guidelines for the retention of hollow-bearing trees in production forests are based on limited information and few studies have tested whether they are being used by fauna, such as hollow-using mammals.
