Taken in Bridgetown, Western Australia. This area by the Blackwood River was full of beautiful wattles that made a spectacular display at the end of winter. They were all chopped down about 18 months ago, albeit for a fairly good reason. They were throwing up saplings everywhere and seeds were being carried downstream and causing problems. All the loppings were recently burnt and this is the result. Apparently we are getting a pretty reserve at some time in the future. In the meantime……….

    That really saddens me

  • It was sad as the trees made such a spectacular display in the winter. Silly thing is new saplings are now growing and the Council hasn’t made any attempt to spray them, so the burn may have been a waste of time and resources.
