Off With Their Heads!

In May the Cocos Palms come down, all six of them, with a little help from family, friends and a great neighbour. Cocos Palms have become prolific since they were introduced from Brazil. The following website lists the many good reasons why they should be removed:  http://www.sydneypalms.com/main/page_types_of_palm_trees_cocos_palm.html

If there aren’t already enough good reasons to remove the Cocos Palms, the link between flying foxes (which eat Cocos Palm seeds) and the Hendra Virus ( which can be fatal for horses – see http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/4790_11112.htm ) now makes it  an even better idea to remove these palms from our area where many horses are in paddocks.
