World record worst tree choice for a carpark
Well, perhaps not quite, but whoever decided to plant Swamp Mahogany (Eucalyptus robusta) in this Subiaco carpark certainly had a sense of humour.
It's an aesthetically-challenged, dead wood-shedding, inconsistent kind of tree, best left in the swamps of eastern Australia where it comes from.
Why anyone thought it suitable as a CBD tree in upmarket Subiaco is anybody's guess.
Still, my mood lifted considerably when further up the road I found...
A 1966(?) Ford Mustang, beautifully restored back to showroom condition.
I want it.
