ENERGEX environment officers are installing more than 300 nest boxes in an effort to replace habitat lost due to the Loganlea to Jimboomba power line project.

It is hoped the nest boxes will provide homes for native birds and marsupials displaced by vegetation clearing along the power line easement.

An Energex spokesman said a number of residents in the Logan Village and Jimboomba area have partnered with Energex to install the boxes on their properties but more are needed.

"Energex's environmental officers are seeking more properties in the area to be involved with the initiative, which has an excellent success rate in other areas of south east Queensland," he said.

"More than 300 professionally constructed nest boxes are available and ready for placement and we are seeking local landowners who have trees suitable for nest boxes to register their interest."
