Tree Information x

Identifier: AR/0986
Tree Type: Single
Registered By: VanWijngaarden, R.
Registration Category: Notable tree/s – Local interest
General Notes:

The larger of two Q. cerris trees growing very close to each other. In close proximity is a large Araucaria bidwillii and a Cinnamomum camphora. This tree appears to be in good general health, however the canopy contains some small-sized deadwood throughout. In previous visits I've noted that the canopy appears to be quite dense (VanWijngaarden, R. 2012).

Information about Monte Cecilia Park, it's many fine specimen trees, architecture and cultural history can be found by referring to the following listing, AR/G0984.
