The City of Ballarat is undertaking an exciting project to develop a register of exceptional trees in Ballarat. Details of the Project are on Council’s website.
Our club members are asked to nominate as many trees as we think warrant consideration for the Register, regardless of their current status i.e. recognised or not, protected or not.
Download the form from the website. Nominations close on 30 June 2014.The 12 categories the City have selected should hopefully cover all of the trees important to the Ballarat community. Some trees will be exceptional or significant in more than just one category. The assessment focus will be on what is important or related specifically to Ballarat i.e. nominated trees do not have to be exceptional on a state-wide or national basis.
The Blue Gum in the photo was one of the trees we visited when our club hosted the SEANA gathering in Ballarat in March 2010.
