Message from our Chair, Lyndal Plant
Welcome to March Treenet News. Australia’s first custodians have been practising tree care and protection for millennia so it’s a pleasure to report how Kaurna Elders’ cultural knowledge and community spirit have helped state government and a local community to care for two highly significant River red gums. The community action to protect these trees is a good case study to guide future collaboration, heritage protection, restoration and conservation.
Co-operating within and across communities and professions to restore and care for natural assets is something you’ll hear more about at the 24th Treenet National Street Tree Symposium in September – follow the link for details about the event.
You can also catch up on how some tree species trials are progressing, check out a deciduous native tree that’s thrived on its street corner for over 100 years, and learn about the Kurrajongs – the soldiers, not the trees.
