Preparation of a recording, interpretation, heritage assessment and conservation plan for a distinctively scarred remnant Eucalyptus tree within an ACT forestry pine plantation.
This tree scar presents a close similarity to an Aboriginal carved tree, and was originally thought to be such. The NOHC analysis revealed it to be the result of a failed attempt by forestry workers in the 1950s to push the tree over using a dozer mounted tree bar. The scar was recognised as a significant artefact of the mid-twentieth century establishment of pine plantations in the ACT.
Site recording, including preparation of 1:1 hand tracing and stereographic pairs, stakeholder consultation, and the analysis and preparation of conservation management strategies.
