An Old Tree

The following images are of a three hundred year old tree. It began growing from a seed that was the size of a grain of sand.

The Great Otway National Park is home to some of the tallest trees in the world, with many attaining heights in excess of 114 metres (374 feet) with an average life-span of 400 years. The fallen logs continue supporting a rich variety of life for centuries more on the forest floor. Our early settlers harvested these trees for timber.

This tree has been estimated by aborists to be over 300 years old.
