Kat Patton writes ” Remembering her in all her magnificence! A devastating loss for the community of Moruya, the Eurobodalla and the many visitors that know and love her.
High winds and torrential rain took its toll over the weekend.
For me, her lush green beauty, grace and strength brought great comfort during the horrors of the bushfires as they raged all around us.
A 'beacon of hope', as central located with the community seeking shelter at the evacuation centre. She stood there strong, green, ancient. A landmark providing hope that 'this too will pass'. Well over 120 years old this wonderful old tree will hopefully live on with moves to celebrate the tree and the Moruya history it shared.
