Looking for Canberra's most amazing tree
by Edwina Robinson 18 August 2016
To coincide with National Tree Day last month the ACT Commissioner for Sustainability and Environment is running a photo competition looking for Canberra's most amazing tree.
Dr Kate Auty, the Commissioner said
'We've received some fantastic examples of Canberra's trees from both the urban and rural environment. Trees are not only beautiful - they provide us with a range of environmental benefits like reduced energy use, pollution mitigation and carbon storage.'
Here's a sneak preview of some of the entries.
