Na­tives grow in ap­peal

Eastern Reporter - - Front Page -

CITY of Bayswater aborist Mark Short says the City’s 1000th street tree rep­re­sents the grow­ing push for WA na­tive plants from res­i­dents in the com­mu­nity.

Mr Short helped to plant a WA pep­per­mint tree in Mor­ley on Septem­ber 13, which marked the end of the City’s win­ter street verge plant­ing pro­gram.

Mr Short said the tree was a hearty type of tree, which es­tab­lished well and did not re­quire much wa­ter.
