Eucalyptus crenulata (Buxton Silver Gum)
It's an ill
wind bushfire that blows burns nobody any good, it is said.
This story will cause a flutter of excitement in many places. Thanks to the bushfires more was learned about this rare tree and rejuvenation of the species in its special locality is expected. It is this sort of thing that gives us, the human species, hope.
In a week when Christians will be commemmorating a death on a cross and a resurrection to new life, Australia's beautiful, ancient soil has thrown up a story of continuing life in the face of adversity. This is an impressive thing.
