Aboriginal Scar trees

CIMG3715Interestingly, not only live trees need’ relocating. There is an increasing need to relocate dead trees of historical significance.  Scar trees form an important part of Aboriginal culture, where bark was taken for a variety of reasons.  Many of these trees exist today in localities not suitable for current land use requirements (such as open pit mining).  They may or may not still be living, but still need moving and still need all the care and attention of any other tree.  Blackwater, Rolleston and Acland are examples of mining areas where scar tree relocation has been carried out by TST.
