200year+ Pine Tree's Final days
Late last year the tree showed signs of dying. Had many expressions of concerns over the years about its health but Arborist Reports found it to be in good health. Of course when we were concerned about the trees health after being hit by lightning we were very surprised to find that neighbours had tried over the last 18 years to have it declared a hazard and requested it to be removed.
Council was not interested in removing tree 2 years ago and our Insurance agency has said to let it fall when queried.
This tree has been part of our lives for 18 years and will be greatly missed. We have celebrated renewal of wedding vows and wakes. We have been lucky to have many of the bird wildflife use the tree for food and nesting puirposes. There was nothing better than waking up to the sounds of 6-8 Kookaburras of a morning.
