Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the Western Australian Centre of Excellence for Climate Change, Woodland and Forest Health.  Our primary concern is the premature decline of many of our important trees species throughout Western Australia.  These species include but are not confined to: Eucalyptus gomphocephala (tuart), E. wandoo (wandoo), E. marginata (jarrah), Corymbia calophylla (marri), E. rudis (Flooded Gum) and Agonis flexuosa (WA peppermint).  The causes of these declines are unknown but we can be sure that a widespread decline in health of these canopy species and the ecosystems they support would have long lasting and serious consequences.

Our MissionThe Centre delivers high quality adaptive research & management outcomes, to better understand ecosystem health in the face of climate change and provides knowledge, tools, skills, policy, and community engagement strategies to address the issue. Our core business is to understand tree, woodland and forest decline in the context of climate change; decline ecology; restoring biodiversity values; and policies and action for the restoration of woodlands and forests. >> More

Identifying marri canker disease
A severe canker disease has been contributing to decline in
marri (Corymbia calophylla) for some years now. The fungal pathogen Quambalaria coyrecup has been identified as the causal agent and is thought to be a native pathogen. It is sometimes difficult to make a correct diagnosis, however there are some key symptoms to look for.
