Docklands Secrets - October 2011

Docklands Secrets - October 2011 Image

Calling the spare parts department

One of VicUrban’s new Harbour Esplanade Norfolk Island pine trees blew over during our extremely windy September in Docklands.  

This, in itself, isn’t a surprise.  It’s perhaps more surprising that the rest of the trees have remained upright – particularly in the wind tunnel at the base of the Conder building where we have watched from the Docklands News office a cyclist blown off her bike.

The fallen tree survived and still had enough soil around its roots to mean that it just need to be stood up, dusted off and encouraged to get back into the fray.

But when they responded, the “tree people” actually brought along and planted a replacement.

They explained that the fallen soldier was going to be taken back for rehab as one of a number of spares that are housed in the Yarra Valley.
