Tree identification signs now in Beaumaris Reserve. A big win for those of us in Beaumaris who cherish our native trees . Bayside City Council has installed tree identification signs for several indigenous species at Beaumaris Reserve.What this initiative means is that residents and visitors can now learn about the types and characteristics of our valued indigenous vegetation in their natural surrounds.According to long-time BSC member, Chris Sutton, who has helped drive the initiative, the signs (although small) will help reinforce the importance and uniqueness of our local trees and encourage respect and protection of our indigenous environment.The other big benefit of the signs is that they support the work done by the Bayside Nursery by providing local residents with a ‘view’ of what specific indigenous trees look like on reaching maturity. Similarly residents applying for a VPO tree removal permit can visualise the replacement indigenous trees they ideally should select from the nursery. Chris says the signs are part of the long-term vision of the Beaumaris Reserve Masterplan which is to have a variety of identified indigenous trees and other vegetation – including ground covers, grasses and shrubs – scattered across the Beaumaris Reserve to showcase our indigenous vegetation. To ensure the signs are easily found, they are located on the trees along the Cloris Ave area of the reserve so do take some time to check them out.
