Overbrowsing of manna gum (Eucalyptus viminalis) and, in some instances, swamp gum (E. ovata) has occurred in areas where koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) have been translocated. A study of 30 radio-tracked translocated koalas examined tree use at three release forests in the Ballarat Vic region. Some 20 tree species were used by koalas. The results showed that koalas will use a wide variety of tree species if available and show a preference for larger trees.
