We missed the National Arbor Week last week but may just have made ammends this week.
With a bit of help from my mate Rod we've just planted four indigenous trees in the garden. I love trees so it's a real privilege to be able to plant some and especially to plant indigenous trees that are in harmony with the environment.
Right to left they are: Assegai, Cape Beech, Natal Mahogany and Cheesewood. All are reasonably quick growing and the Mahogany & Cheesweood are noted for their attracting birdlife.
The main purpose for planting was to create a screen between us and the hideous house being built at the back of us. It's a big house with a balcony looking straight into our garden and house. So in a fairly short time the newly planted trees will cut off their view of our home and garden. Result!
