Roadhire was founded in 2012 by Glen and Wendy Wallis who currently reside in the Northern NSW hinterland. In the last two years, tree-clearing has tripled in New South Wales, leaving important koala habitats incredibly fragmented or completely lost and urban expansion continues to threaten koalas through vegetation loss and vehicle strikes. In 2017 as a preliminary exercise, 100 native trees were planted to see how well the trees survived and it was an astounding success.
Considering the existence of koalas on the owners property, they worked with Bangalow koalas to join one koala corridor to another. On the 10th of August 2019, 400 trees were planted on the property thanks to the support of Linda Sparrow of Bangalow Koalas and a host of volunteers. It was a huge success and the trees are looking very happy and healthy.
