The Glenfern Green Wedge property is part of an extensive wildlife corridor that extends from Jells Park, running south along Dandenong Creek to Churchill National Park and then north through the Lysterfield Valley, connecting to the Dandenong Ranges National Park. The area is classified by the National Trust as "an attractive pastoral landscape due to its attractive landscape character and its importance as a buffer between Metropolitan Melbourne and the Dandenong Ranges” (L355 2/3/1981). It is also classified by Aboriginal Heritage Victoria as an "area of cultural sensitivity" and aboriginal artifacts have been discovered on the site. The property is classified by Knox Council as “regionally significant” and by Water Ecoscience as “biologically significant”. Rare and endangered flora and fauna are recorded on the property and immediate surrounds. The property features 180 Yellow Box trees, some dating back to European settlement. Graeme Lorimer’s Sites of Biological Significance survey commissioned by the Knox Council (revised 2010) identifies the property as Valley Grassy Forest, which is listed as regionally vulnerable and is rare in the Dandenong Ranges.
