Knox Tree Trails are back with familiar faces and a number of new tree friends!
This Biodiversity Month, take time to discover some of the beautiful and old trees that look after the birds, insects and other creatures in our community.
There are 30 elder trees located throughout Knox. You can find them in the following locations:
- Dandenong Creek between JW Manson Reserve and Bayswater Park
- Boronia Road between Langwith Avenue and Boronia Mall
- Blind Creek in Fair Park, Ferntree Gully
- Wellington Road Linear Reserve between Liberty Avenue and Wellington Village Shopping Centre
- The Basin Triangle
At each tree’s location, there is a sign that tells you the name of the tree, it’s age and some fun facts about the species. You can even ask the tree a question or let them know why you appreciate them by sending an email to email@example.com.
