Deakin drought stricken oak trees

The ailing oak trees at the Deakin shops are responding to watering. They are being supplied with 500L per tree by a contractor. The ACT Government is buying lake water for the purpose

The eucalypts are also in urgent need of similar attention. Without it they must soon be candidates for removal

Would DRA like to support water purchases? Perhaps the commercial members and patrons of our terrific cafes and restaurants would back the initiative.

In the meantime DRA has been using watering cans to help the agapanthus on the Hopetoun Circuit roundabout to survive.
