It takes less than one rabbit per hectare to prevent the successful regeneration of many of our common native trees and shrubs. This means that many rabbit-infested patches of remnant native vegetation can’t sustain themselves naturally and are in slow decline – but unfortunately this often goes unnoticed.
Whether you are a land-owner who conserves some uncleared woodland on the farm or belong to a Landcare group managing vegetation along a roadside, this quick assessment method will help you decide if rabbits are a problem and what action you need to take. National Park managers will also find this a useful tool for alerting them to problems.
