Six volunteers from the Bitou Busters and Myall Koala Environment groups continued in the rain to weed the John Davis Memorial Avenue of trees so that the Midcoast Council could mulch the area.
Working with this Group was Mel Ledgett, a professional bush regenerator with the Boomerang Environment & Landscape Consultancy, donating 25 saplings of bottle brush and lomandra to plant.
John Davis was the Council’s Tree Management Officer from November 2002 to August 2012.
His vision was to plant koala-friendly eucalyptus trees along Sanderling Avenue beside the golf course to support the locally endangered koala population and to showcase the beauty of the trees to the community.
