TREES MAKE THE LAND VALUABLE
YOU can stand back and say ‘Why doesn’t the council do this?’, or ‘Why doesn’t the Government do that?’ However, doing something yourself about the issue is a better course of action. One of the answers is continuing the historically planted tree canopy that is under threat from development, infill and a drying climate that is literally in our back yards. Have a look at your garden and, if you have them, ask what happens after that towering gum, tall hedge of native bushes or grove of paperbarks end their life? We can help our tree canopy with an ethos of planting our own land replacements for trees that become too old. There will also be a chance there is a strong youngster ready when that old gum topples in the next big blow, and enough trees to convince developers they are the fabric that makes the land valued.
