impact of climate change in Australia and Southeast Queensland. He will describe some of

Save the trees from deer damage with knitted tree protectors !

 Feral deer often strip the bark off native trees in urban bushland and also off street trees around Brisbane. 

Jindalee Bushcare Group, which restores large areas of the Mount Ommaney Bushland Reserve, is putting
knitted protectors around trees whose trunks have been partially stripped by feeding deer. This is to
prevent further damage to the trees and to save them from being completely ringbarked which would kill
them. So far, this experiment has been successful!
There are so many affected trees, that the group would  appreciate some help in knitting the protectors.
Get out your yarn left over from knitting winter  and start knitting! Or you can crochet…
