|Dieback - Killing our Trees|
Dieback is a disease that kills our native plants. To be more precise, it is a soil borne fungal pathogen called Phytophthora cinnamomi. It was first realised in Roleystone and surrounding areas when the Jarrah trees were see to be dying.
Dieback has been introduced into Australia, and is now recognised as a serious threat to our native flora. Volunteers are required to take on the enormous task of treating as many trees as possible in an attempt to save the local bushland.
We now know what causes it, how it is spread and what to do to help protect our plants. So it's time to go on the offensive, but we need your help by joining the group and participating in field days.
Field days to fight Dieback
We have fields days approximately once a month Spring and Summer to treat the bushland for protection against Dieback.
For field day dates:
The field days are open to anyone who would like to help. Members of Roleybushcare will teach newcomers how to treat their own bushland.
Morning tea is provided.
