Trees: A Canopy Extraordinaire Exhibition

A City of Greater Dandenong exhibition that celebrates, reflects and recognises the significance of trees in the local landscape over time and the essential timber industry that grew the local community. An opportunity to understand how we can sustain the tree canopy for future generations.

An exhibition that recognises the cultural significance of trees to the traditional owners of this land the Bunurong people, the impact of European settlement on trees and the emergence of the local timber industry as a commercial enterprise in the Dandenong region.

The exhibition will recognise that 2024 marks eighty years since Community Forest planting began at Greaves Reserve in Dandenong in 1944. The early growth and work of the Natural Resources Conservation League in Springvale and the ongoing work by City of Greater Dandenong Parks and Garden staff to sustain the tree canopy for the future.

This exhibition will display artwork and items from the Council’s Civic and Cultural Heritage Collection, displayed alongside local historical society collections.
