Li­ons on prowl for prob­lem trees

Campaspe News - - NEWS -

THE Rochester Li­ons Club is seek­ing your help.

Last year, with the help of Ross Ab­ber­field from Goul­burn Mur­ray Val­ley Re­gional Fruit Fly, they held in­for­ma­tion ses­sions with stu­dents at Rochester Pri­mary School and St Joseph’s Pri­mary School as well as a pub­lic meet­ing.

The aim of the ses­sions was to raise aware­ness about fruit fly in the area.

The Li­ons club is un­der­tak­ing the task of iden­ti­fy­ing prob­lem trees on Rochester’s na­ture strips where the in­sect may breed.

One of the com­mon plants is the Prunus Plumes, which is a haven for fruit fly.

It is be­lieved a list will be made up and for­warded to coun­cil with a re­quest to have the trees re­moved.

Res­i­dents are asked to as­sist the Li­ons in iden­ti­fy­ing these trees and if you are aware of some near your res­i­dence please con­tact Hed­ley Moon on 0428 445 436 or any Li­ons mem­ber.
