I know most of you who are reading this, live overseas and the removal and or destruction of these trees will not directly affect you, perhaps this minute anyway.

Here is an image of what a River Red Gum looks like. Keep in mind, this example image is not from the area that this post is about, however. They are usually a couple of hundred years old already, sometimes a lot older. If you would like to help these trees, what’s left of them, to continue on enjoying their life and providing you with more air so you can continue on enjoying your life.
