Caring for the Casuarinas

On Thursday 15th July about 20 members of the Bundanoon Garden Club, held a working bee at the club to mainatin the casuarinas that have been planted on the western side of the top croquet lawn. The grove of 50 casuarinas, a few swamp gums and a wollemi pine front onto Buchanan Close (Off Lochinvar Drive, which itself comes off Erith St). The casuarinas (Allocasuarina littoralis, also known as black sheoaks) were planted last year as part of the garden club's 50th anniversary. It is hoped that when the casuarinas are full grown they will form part of a corridor of sheoaks between Morton National Park and the Blue Mountains providing refuge and food for the Glossy Black Cockatoos as they move between the mountains the coast. It is anticipated the trees will provide much needed shade to the croquet lawns in summer.
