One of the reasons i love a blitz is because we never know what we will find. This baby Manna Gum will be an interesting specimen. It shows the importance of the guard removal we did. Lynne and Jim have planted so many 1000's of trees that they can b excused for not checking in with them all. Thank you to the 16 people who did a fabulous amount of work and thanks to Jim and Lynne for sharing their amazing property and hospitality.
