The Lane Cove River
A site that was recently subject to a restoration burn; all of this greenery is only a month or so old.
Homalanthus populifolius, Polyscias sambucifolia, Acacia parramattensis, etc. Lovely stuff.
Another burn zone, regenerating nicely. Lomandra, dianella, basket grass, homolanthus, sigesbeckia, commelina…all good stuff. All we have to do is guard the borders to keep the weeds and locals out, and the rest takes care of itself.
The dead trees were already senescent and on the way out before the fire came through; those mid-size species only live a decade or so. Eventually, we’ll get proper big eucalypts back in; you can see them in the background.
