Our trees have stood as silent witnesses to the colonisation of a harsh land, as living memorials of events we must never forget, and as inspiration to generations of artists, poets and writers. Some will forever be associated with the pivotal moments in our history, some have simply offered shelter from the sun, while others have provided the wood that was at the foundation of European settlement. But regardless of their roles, they have all played a part in forming our heritage. The ancient, the young, those teetering on the brink of death, the tallest, the endangered - they all have stories they could tell.
