400-year-old tree faces axe

The poor tree! Nothing is going to be old in Oz, shortly….

A SUBURBAN Melbourne council wants to save a 400-year-old gum tree standing in the path of a $2.5 billion tollway development.

The Dandenong Council has lodged a last-minute application for a heritage listing, and it is taking legal action, to protect the gnarled red gum which started growing long before the arrival of Captain Cook.
