14 tonnes of tree

An amazingly generous householder in Middle Park donated 14 tonnes of palm and two possums to the  St Kilda Botanical Gardens today.  Apparently it took all day yesterday and two large cranes to remove the tree, and today it took a crane, half a dozen men, and four hours to get the tree into its new home.

How lucky are we? Now the centre bed has four palms again.
