when dad bought his first house in thirroul around about 1982 he immediately started planting native trees in the front yard and spent the next 15 years building a stand of illawarra subtropical rainforest. it wasn't a big yard but it was hidden from the street by a brush fence so when you were in it it was easy to imagine you were actually in the rainforest and not in a suburban front yard. this is later when it was well established and i was in high school. in the late 1990s when i was overseas and my brother was living in tasmania he sold the house and moved up the mid-north coast, and the new owner chopped everything down and made a lawn. :)

Not in the cities, but certainly in the country they hate them.

I just couldn't get enough of the ancient temples overgrown by trees in Cambodia. Such complex emotions, civilisations rising and falling, slowly returning to nothingness

Persepolis was buried in sand, reclaimed by the desert, till it was excavated.

100% agree. Preferably not your house returning to nothingness while youre living there and paying it off.

I must say after living in the Eastern Suburbs the wonder of ficus trees overpowering the buildings seemed a bit less ancient when I went to Cambodia. Twenty Years?

Angkor Wat.... scene of the world's greatest gardening fiasco, even GSTQs spectacular attempts pale in comparison

Yes, a trip to Ankor is good for getting life in perspective. I'm sure the therapeutic qualities have helped many.......as well as standing as a warning against inappropriate planting of large trees near buildings.

He actually has - he did the Hawaiian Ironman triathlon a couple of years back and was still a keen follower and observer of triathlon and mountain biking
