Easy being green
I’M grateful for Alan Thornton’s letter about the proposed car park in the main street and the information about how far the project has advanced.
Between 2011 and 2015 volunteers and contractors for SAILS’ Buderim Native Forest Preservation Project did a lot of weed (and rubbish) removal there.
We left the weedy edge intact because of the controversy about camphor removals at the time.
A couple of weeks ago some regulars at the Martins Creek Bushland monthly working bee did a quick species count on the site. We identified 50 different native species growing there.
This makes it a biodiverse and mature piece of native forest worthy of preservation.
This piece of native forest on state land in the centre of Buderim should be preserved for environmental and heritage reasons. If the weedy edge is removed, this would be an excellent addition to Buderim’s parks. — Heather Johnston
