Tree lovers respond to tree rescue call
The Grow Urban Shade Trees group has received a number of offers to take a native lemon myrtle bush that was destined for the mulcher.
"We are looking for a home for this beautiful backhousia citriodora, a lemon myrtle," said group member Ms Deb Sunartha.
"With a development application approved at its home, sadly it will end up in the mulcher if not rescued.
"It is an Australian native bush food with fragrant leaves, suitable for gardens where it attracts a multitude of nectar loving insects.
"This specimen is 1.4m high."
Ms Sunartha later said that the group had received a number of offers to take the bush.
"We have a number of tree lovers wanting the lemon myrtle."
She said she would get back to them in order.
"If you miss out, we may have an alternative for you," she said.
