Artist's Description

2013-12-24
W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm
.
The first light of day sweeps across some bluegums (Eucalyptus) on our smallholding (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa).
.
South Africa is home to more than 1 700 indigenous species of trees and shrubs, some of which are threatened because of their rarity as well as the pressure of commercial and subsistence use.
.
Under the declaration, tree species listed as protected may not be cut, disturbed or damaged and their products may not be owned, transported, exported or sold without a licence. Once a tree is listed as a Champion, all trees of the species fall under the protection of the Act.

Two such Champion trees are The Twin Giants of Woodbush State Forest in Magoebaskloof, Limpopo, and are the tallest of the lofty Saligna bluegum trees (Eucalyptus saligna). At a height of 79 metres, they tower above a 26-storey block of flats. Planted in 1926, they are the tallest trees in Africa.
