Hundreds of trees protected for about five years

Roleybushcare has spent the past six field days injecting every Jarrah, Persoonia, Banksia and Sheoak in the bushland in Eskdale Reserve, the surrounding bush around Hillandale Retirement Village, the Jarrah Road Bushland next to the Fire Brigade’s headquarters and the trees surrounding the Roleystone Karragullen Seniors building. A huge task that will not have to be done again for at least five years. This area is pretty special as it is right in the centre of our village and is a little like Roleystone’s Kings Park. As more development goes on and more trees are taken out then this area becomes even more precious. We thank everyone who helped out over the last dieback season.

Thank you ERM and the Girl Guides

On our last dieback treatment day, a group of ten volunteers joined us from Environmental Resources Management (ERM). They travelled from as far as Joondalup and Fremantle to do their community service with us. It was a joy to work with these young people and they remarked on what a beautiful place Roleystone was. Thank you also to the Roleystone Girl Guides who generously let us use their big veranda. It came in very useful during morning tea when we had our only major downfall of rain.
