Tree relocated

A dragonblood tree has been moved from the centre of a roundabout at the Gawler Street/Dutton Road intersection.

A distinctive tree in Mt Barker is being relocated in a bid to save it.
The dragon blood tree re-located to the centre of the Gawler Street and Dutton Road roundabout in 2019 will be moved to a temporary recovery area near the Mt Barker Library.
Mt Barker Council infrastructure manager Phil Burton said the roundabout had proven to be “a little too cool in the winter and early spring”, meaning the tree was struggling.
