'We Speak for the Trees' Tasmania Presentation
Join The Diggers Club and Foundation Founder, Clive Blazey AM as he launches his eighth book.
Hosted by The Launceston Horticultural Society, we invite you to join The Diggers Club and Foundation Founder, Clive Blazey AM for a special event in Tasmania on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September!
During this presentation, Clive will be talking about his latest book, We Speak for the Trees, discussing the impact all gardeners can have by selecting trees for climate suitability, shade, habitat protection and bushfire prevention.
Together we will discuss:
• Tree selection in a changing climate
• Why eucalyptus aren’t always the solution
• What happens below the soil?
• How to secure Australia’s environmental future
• What every gardener can do to create changes needed
• Political challenges
The Launceston Horticultural Society is able to host this presentation at the magnificent colonial property of Strathmore through the generosity of Sue and Graham Gillon. This property is close to the historic village of Evandale and was originally believed to be built in 1826 by a Samuel Bryan with convict labour, however, recent research has revealed that the property began as early as 1823. It is believed that the bricks for the house were made from the mud from the lake.
This event will include a rare opportunity to wander Strathmore’s extensive gardens and Lockmaben Lake, to contemplate the majestic beauty of the old trees, and marvel at the heated brick wall that was designed to provide heat to grow fruit and produce.

We Speak for the Trees
Clive's eighth book contains detailed information on almost 100 ornamental, fruit and nut trees selected for climate suitability, shade, habitat protection and bushfire prevention.
Each tree listed in this book is growing in one of The Diggers Foundation gardens, so we have gained valuable first-hand knowledge by planting, trialing and careful study over more than 40 years.
