The ‘Neck’ has a great new look now that the last four Pine trees have finally been felled. Around twelve others were cut down several months ago.
The dunes now look similar to how they looked throughout thousands of years that Aboriginal tribes roamed the area and, more recently, during the convict era from 1832 to 1877. Photos from the convict days show them to have been considerably higher than they are today.
Thanks go to our local Parks and Wildlife Service personnel who managed the project. Unfortunately the trees have to stay where they have fallen as their removal would be costly and could result in un-necessary damage to the wildlife habitat. The natural vegetation remaining should grow around the logs and obscure them fairly quickly.
