Docklands Secrets - May 2012 Image

This recalcitrant tree was “adjusted” by arborical chiropractors last October in an attempt to get it back on the straight and narrow.

It was poked, prodded and ultimately winched back into adopting the correct posture expected of Docklands’ 200 Norfolk Island Pines.

It was also fitted with a brace to help it withstand the howling winds common between NewQuay’s Conder tower and LifeLab in Digital Harbour.

Alas, despite going straight for many months, the brave young pine has wilted in the face of adversity and has adopted a distinctly southerly orientation.

Docklands News suggests that its days may be numbered and it could find itself being replaced by one of the reserves being held in storage.

There is another tree on the corner of Bourke St and Harbour Esplanade which appears to have given up the fight altogether.  No explanation is apparent for its demise.

    There is a Pine in Distress outside AFL House next to the Night Rider bus stop on Harbour Esplanade. That may be about to give up the ghost also.
