Florentine TAS 7140,

Discover the girthiest Strinybark in Tasmania, at 5.4m wide its longer than a Toyota HiAce van. “Home Tree” was found in February 2020 as the surrounding forest was being clearfelled by Sustanable Timber Tasmania. Thanks to the curisoty and subsequent quick actions of Annie Ford and Jack O’Hare “Home Tree” was temporarily saved.

“Home Tree” along with five other trees over 4.5m wide and remaining old growth forest now have a chance to tell their story. A story of a big tree, an abundant forest nursery and an ancient forest coniguious with the WHA. The Lady Binney Forest Reserve joining onto this area is the premiere example of ultra tall stringybark forest in Tasmania.

The Lady Binney Forest Reserve was a tourist destination in the past however its short 1km loop walk has been lost to time, and mismanagement. After we have guided you through the forest around “Home Tree” we can venture into this forgotten walk. You’ll be inspired by this truly unique example of an open understory ferny forest.

We are so lucky to have such incredible forests here in Tasmania and we’d really love to guide you around and share our knowledge and experience.
