The Royal Botanical Corporation currently stylised as The Royal Botanical Society of Falcar is the government department representing the Flora (plant life) and Fauna (animal life) within the Kingdom of Falcar. This role includes the maintenance of national parks as well as maintaining the collections of the Royal Botanic Garden of Falcar. The corporation was officially established through charter on the 30th of June 2016, as part of the Flora Act 2016.
Under the Flora Act 2016 Sec A Part II the Duties of the Company and Wildlife-General are;
1) To maintain the gardens of Falcar; 2) To catalogue species present within Falcar of Plant, Animal and Fungi; 3) To monitor weather forecasts; 4) To introduce and erradicate Plant, Animal and Fungi Species from Falcar; 5) To harvest pods, seeds and other items from Falcar; 6) To regulate pest control within Falcar.
As the Flora Act gives the powers to introduce & erradicate as well as powers to regulate pest control to the company, the wildcraft-general publishes a List of Prohibited Species at his discretion, importation or introduction of a species listed into any Falcarian area is an offence (Flora Act 2016 Sec B Part II)

Plants of Cultural Significance
Some of the plants within the nation of Falcar are designated as Culturally Significant. It is a serious offence under the Flora Act 2016 (Sect. B Part I & III) to injure, destroy, remove from the nation or somehow negatively impact on a Culturally Significant Tree.
Rottnest Pine of The Kanes
The Rottnest Pine of The Kanes was officially designated as culturally important as it
"Represents the Island and Ancestral Claim of the Island of Rottnest, and the distant ceremonial connection between Falcar and The Rottnest."
It comprised part of the monarchal collections of the Royal Botanical Garden and was listed as at risk during the 2017 Falcarian Census. The Species, Callitris preissii is endemic to The Rottnest and the Rottnest Pine of the Kanes was the only plant within Falcar in the Genus Callitris. It was later reported to have died during the extreme heat of the 2018 summer.
The tree was moved after the passing of the Proclamation Act 2017 and resided within Inner and Outer Falcar at the time of it's demise
