How to get there. Access the National Tree Day 2012 planting site from the nature park entrance off Antill Street (1) or from the residential site The Fair (2).

(1) Access nature park entrance Antill St. This is roughly, but not directly, across Antill St. from Carotel – the entrance is between Carotel and Solstice, but closer to Carotel. Once you have entered the nature park, head off towards the left as indicated by the arrow sign (NOT up the hill!) until you get to the fence around The Fair residential development and follow the fence, away from Antill St. and a bit up the hill. It’s 5-10 minute walk. The planting site is behind (east of) The Fair, about midway along the back fence.

(2) Access from The Fair. Coming from the south along Antill St. enter the Fair at the round-about located at the intersection Antill and Aspinall Sts and follow the perimeter Tay Street to the intersection with Ian Nicol Street; you will see the planting site to your right. There is limited space for car parking along the perimeter street.

Debris of cut woody weeds placed around young plants helps to keep the tree guards in place and to suppress weeds (Photograph Waltraud Pix, 09.09.2012)
