They took all the trees and put them in a tree Museum.

Hey Byron land guardians

Put away the herbicides now

Give me the spots on my apples

But leave me the birds and the bees


Don’t it always seem to go

That you don’t know what you have got

Till its gone

They paved paradise

And put up another parking lot.

Does anyone know where the mayor’s pledge for herbicide use to be reduced and with the phasing out of round-up  now stands?

We are still seeing poisoned Coral trees collapsing into the Wilsons Creek and spasmodic spraying into drains and waterways. The health report on the Wilson River is dismal and our responsibilities, living near the head waters, is crucial to the future health of the water.


It is time the Greens put the environment back onto the first of its priorities.


NPA doesn’t have an association position on herbicide use as it’s more relevant to the managers of national parks than it is us.
But I think any reasonably minded person would be concerned about Roundup given the revelation of how the proportion of people in the USA had it in their urine, and the link between roundup and GM. I think the environmental element of GM has been lost in the health debate, and roundup-ready GM crops are a big part of that.
Hope this helps, thanks for getting in touch!
