Corrugated trees near the Bay.

By Pork Hunt 10 February 2013 12

corrugated trees

Hi Rioters,

Many times travelling to or from the Bay, I have noticed two trees close to the road that are wrapped in corrugated iron. The wrapping is about 8 metres off the ground and there is a wire rope between the two trees at about 15 metres. I reckon the wrapping has been in place for about 15 years.

The location is about 300 metres inland from the Black Flat Rd turnoff.

After brief postulation on site this morning, I came to the conclusion that someone or something hideous and gruesome is living in the trees and must not be allowed to come to ground level under any circumstances.

Why pick on two trees to live in next to a busy road when there are millions of trees in the forest?

I saw no evidence of tools or tool making skills on site so it’s quite unlikely that this is the critter (bastard) that nails (sob) teddy bears to trees on the Kings Hwy.

This could be a job for Tim the Yowie Man to solve. If he lurks on RA he will see this, if not, can those who know him point this out please?

Ewok trap for speeder bikes. Damn Imperials.

I’m more interested in the (sob) teddy bears and dolls that are nailed to trees on the Kings Hwy near Bungendore. I’ve also seen then on tress near Congo south of Moruya.

Does anyone know what this is about?

I’m more interested in finding out if the Higgs Boson has actually been discovered but I choose not to post my self-absorption on here unless provoked…

Which reminds me, why is there one of those small distance signs *every kilometre* near there to Braidwood (31, 30, 29, 28…)? Normally they are 5 or 10 km apart elsewhere. Did somebody order too many?

You often see them out west too. They are for the road workers so they can plot repairs and issues with a better degree of accuracy.

I doubt that would work very well, as trees grow.

Probably so that emergency services can get a more accurate location on the car accidents.

They also do this when koala’s over populate, and eat the buggery out of trees. Other parts of Aus have used this to save rare breeds of gum trees that still exist here.

the sheet steel stops possums from climbing up the trees, they have them at ANU. As for the wires they allow animals to cross large gaps (i would assume gliders)

Those are ironbarks.

I would guess they’re glider den trees. Wire for gliders to move between the two, and the corro to stop possums and other invaders.
