The planting of marri trees in Yellagonga Regional Park was part of an ongoing environmental offset required as compensation for developers clearing foraging sites for Carnaby’s black cockatoos in the Eglinton estate.

Marri nut seeds are a popular food of this species along with seeds from banksia, hakea, grevillea and pines.
