Cider Gum Saturday is here! It's no secret we love the Cider Gums and we are lucky enough to be collaborating with State Government (DPIPWE) and Hydro Tasmania to reduce threats and support the protection of these struggling trees.

Found only in the Miena area, the trees are given their name for the unique sap that runs through them. The sweetness of the sap not only acts as an anti-freeze to allow these trees to live in the coldest place in Tasmania, the sap and new shoots are a desirable dinner for many types of species. With shorter winters, and increasing numbers of browsers, this doesn't allow much time for the trees to recover. Add the 2019 bushfires and we find this unique species in severe decline.

You are going to be hearing much more about these beautiful trees as we work to support their recovery potential and reduce threats to their survival.
