It was a thrill and a privilege to have been able to assist with the planting of the first super advanced mature Fig at the Headland Park at Barangaroo today. This park is going to be such a beautiful addition to Sydney and I'm looking to forward to sitting under this Fig and watching the Harbour.

I had an interesting day today attending the workshop held by the Office of Environment and Heritage to address the serious issue of the Grey Box dieback (Eucalyptus moluccana) that is having a devastating impact on the Eucalyptus moluccana populations throughout Western Sydney.
