All good things must end
This chair and sign was on the road so I went to investigate.
The resident had put it out to warn that this old Melaleuca had split through the main trunk.
It's probably unsalvageable and a reminder that all living things have a finite lifespan.
But it should also remind us that we need to be constantly replanting simply to replace natural attrition.
That's hundreds of trees a year in a typical Council.
And that's only to prevent us going backwards.
Of course we want to be doing much more than that these days.
