Bulimba Memorial ParkÂ is a 4.6-hectare parkland (managed by Brisbane City Council) with its main frontage along the iconic Oxford Street. Historical records indicate that perimeter trees were plantedÂ around the park between 1919-1923 in memory of the men and women from the Bulimba district who enlisted and went overseas in World War 1.
In late October 2013 I was lucky enough to be invited to the United States to participate in a Leadership Workshop with the International Society of Arboriculture in Illinois. This was the perfect opportunity to tack on a holiday with my wife in New York City before heading to the workshop.
As part of our extensive Arboriculture services we are often called upon to supply and install new treesÂ forÂ our clients. This provides a fantastic opportunity to provide clients with the right advice about what trees they can (and shouldnâ€™t!) plant within their urban gardens to achieve the best possible outcome in the long term.
Those of you that follow us onÂ FacebookÂ will know that Glenn recently claimed the PioncianaÂ tree as the company’s official tree. Those of us that live inÂ sunny Brisbane will no doubt already be familiar with this striking tree. We thought it was a perfect opportunity to tell you all a little more about the species.
