Recently I was lucky to be taken to see some really old banksias near Linton. This patch was on a road reserve and we were interested to see if they were setting seed.
Unfortunately there were no new cones to be seen but there must have been a regeneration event a few years ago as there were several young shrubs.
Reports are being received across the volcanic plains, of many old banksias dying. Hope they are not heading for being on the threatened list.
