    1. Thanks Anonymous. We did have a similar question about this so I hope you don’t mind a repeat of the reply.

      Relatively few of the native tree species planted on our campus during the 1960s and 1970s are local to our area, and more commonly came from provenances like the north coast or tablelands, and even Tasmania.

      The Lemon Scented Gums that were planted in the Central Courtyard in the 1960s, for example, are a native to central and northern Queensland. These trees are related to the more locally-adapted Spotted Gum. Unfortunately, as a result, those trees have not aged well and a tree succession plan has been put in place. As the Lemon Scented Gums have outgrown the confines of their courtyard space, branch breakages have become unpredictable.

      Regardless of the Campus Development works that are being undertaken on campus, some trees unfortunately have reached the end of their life and must be taken down from time to time. We understand that the removal of some trees can be an emotional process and so we are planning to hold a number of community activities to pay our respects to these trees, with further details to come.
