A good but windy first meeting of the year following our Summer break as the remains of cyclone Dovi passing overhead. It was nice to see three new members come for their first meeting.

During the first part of the meeting Sandra talked about tree care 101 – watering, nutrient requirements, light and shade, diseases and treatments.

After a quick break we then discussed the trees that members had brought in which were focused on those which had survived major setbacks due to problems with watering, pests, damage to the trunk and heat.
