Trees of the Wimmera - May Winner

Jun 04, 2017
 
Best Climbing TreeThe "Best Climbing Tree"
Bec Fletcher, found in Horsham

Trees of the Wimmera May winning entry comes from Bec Fletcher- commonly known as “the bike jump tree” near the Holy Trinity Lutheran School in Horsham.

This tree is a River Red gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis)

Each new school year and each new intake of foundation students brings a new group of fans of this terrific twisted old tree. The well-worn tracks across the base of the tree have formed as students on their bikes each morning take on the jump and add a thrill to start their school day.  For many youngsters it’s a highlight of the ride to school.  After school finishes students can often be see hanging in and around its branches for a final play before heading home. 

The tree is a reminder of the school’s close proximity to the Wimmera River, where many other River Red Gums grow and provide play spaces for fish, birds and lizard- all that remains of the old flood plain

A great photo.  Thanks for sharing Bec.
