Best Answer

Yes, koalas do leave their trees, as they do not live in a single tree.

Koalas have a range of trees within a radius of up to a couple of kilometres, which are their "home trees". They regularly move from tree to tree along the ground, seeking a new flavour of tree or just to reinstate which trees are in their territory. This is when they are at their most vulnerable from dogs and cars.
