It’s been some time now since we made the Callistemon path to the south of the driveway and it was badly in need of some maintenance.
In the terraces at the front of the house is a number of larger and mature Callistemon(Bottle Brush) trees.
One of the larger ones is near the North East corner of the house. Unfortunately this tree is starting to cast shadow on our solar panels, so it is going to need a big chop!
Today we took a trip up to Brisbane to find/collect/purchase some new trees and plants. We are now planting the South Gully and endeavouring to restore the rainforest that was previously there.
We also have a number of other places that need planting, including the roadside and parts of the home hill. These areas are part of our battle against erosion.
