September's Tree of the Month honour goes to...

Monday 6 September 2021

The local residents of College Street in Glenelg love their street trees – a small grove of New Zealand Christmas trees, one of which boasts a spectacular display of aerial roots.

In fact, they love them so much that they banded together to protect two of the trees that were under threat from a nearby development.

“We like this little wood,” said Steve, pictured centre with his neighbours (from L-R), George, Bev, Trina and Dave.

One of the trees now, the Pohutukawa with the aerial roots, now bears the blue Tree of the Month sash for September, but the honour is for all of the street’s trees.

Nominate your favourite tree to be October’s Tree of the Month, as part of our ongoing campaign to showcase an iconic or loved tree in Holdfast Bay via the link below. And read more about the previous Tree of the Month winners.
