Tree Names, Alexandra
Alexandra’s early inhabitants left our town with the gift of many mature trees that we now all love and enjoy. This foresight means our council building is shaded by century old oak trees and Leckie Park has many unique mature specimen trees. Alexandra and District Open Gardens wanted everyone who stops to admire these trees to learn of their proper botanical names. This was done in 2018 with the placement of signs stating the botanical and common name of the significant trees. A leaf sample from each tree was identified by a Royal Botanical Gardens botanist to ensure that the names were correct.
