Each year we pick a theme unique to our special corner of the world, and this year we wanted to highlight an often overlooked but crucial link in our ecosystem: the noble Tree. Every few months we receive letters from the community expressing concern about trees being ripped out on or near public land. While the deforestation rates in Western Australia are stabilising, in many areas of the Wheatbelt the remnant trees lining the road are the only vegetation for native birds and animals to find food and navigate the area safely, creating highways for our native species.
