Weston Creek – new growth

Posted by jerry on January 7th, 2006 — Posted in Journal

The 18 January 2003 bushfires had razed the forest to the ground. Since then it has lain fallow pending redevelopment decisions and the new Canberra Plan. A quick walk around the local area a couple of days ago showed that new growth is afoot!

Just a few weeks ago strange green plastic triangles started springing up all over the old forest – presaging a new planting

The area is currently high with weeds – like this delightful Scottish thistle – a curse in the garden

But is it going to be just a plantation of native eucalyptus trees? Time to venture closer to investigate…

Ah! the are is divided into regions – some planted with oaks, some with sycamores, and some with gum trees – so we will have a variety of foliage at the end of our street

Cheers
Jerry
