Most land has been cleared for farming near my home (Wagga Wagga). But a few precious patches of protected remnant vegetation remain. Hence ‘arboretum’ to reflect the conservation status of these trees. The surviving eucalypts are ‘august’ (wise, noble and grand), providing solace and grounding for future life challenges.
