Name tags on trees

Unread post by Madalla » Wed Jun 15, 2016 12:18 pm

I find it very interesting to walk around in a camp or in the garden of the nursery at Skukuza and look at the trees.
It is then that I really appreciate the name tags on the trees. I don't want to walk around with a field guide and then stand there trying to identify the tree.

The problem is that there are so few trees with tags on.
This looks like a nice project for the HR?

there is so many beautiful tree specimens at the Skukuza nursery, its one of my favourite areas to drink a tea and coffee. I am sure the Lowveld Region of the HR's have considered to increase the amount of tags on some of the magnificent trees of the nursery.

Did you check the back of the trees for the tags Image

Did you know that every tree has a front and a back? Image

easily determined which is which

Have you ever seen anyone having a Image in front of a tree Image

I have seen a few name tags trees on the H4-1 but that's about all.

There are folk from the Highveld Region of the SANParks Honorary Rangers who do a lot of tree-tagging in various camps, so it is already an on-going project. Thanks Willie and Alice!
