There were hundreds of these wattle trees growing in Bridgetown in bushland between Walter Road and the Blackwood River. In early Spring they were spectacular, but now they have all been taken down and poisoned as considered a pest.

“Acacia is a genus of shrubs and trees belonging to the subfamily Mimosoideae of the family Fabaceae, first described in Africa by the Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus in 1773. The plants tend to be thorny and pod-bearing, with sap and leaves typically bearing large amounts of tannins. The name derives from ακις (akis) which is Greek for a sharp point, due to the thorns in the type-species Acacia nilotica (”Nile Acacia") from Egypt. 1
Acacias are also known as thorntrees, whistling thorns or wattles, including the yellow-fever acacia and umbrella acacias.
There are roughly 1300 species of Acacia worldwide, about 960 of them native to Australia, with the remainder spread around the tropical to warm-temperate regions of both hemispheres, including Europe, Africa, southern Asia, and the Americas."
