Those of us living in Brisbane's Redlands are extremely fortunate: we are either living near the beautiful Moreton Bay, or we are situated close to bushland and a wildlife corridor. It's the best of both worlds really.

My small block backs onto bush and I just love greeting the many different varieties of bird life that visit at various times across the year: kookaburras, galahs, lorikeets, drongos, blue wrens, butcher birds, wattle birds, willy wagtails, and even scrub turkeys. We have blue tongue lizards and frilled neck lizards that pop by, as well as possums and wallabies. I'm refusing to mention the odd carpet snake.



So keeping my little bit of bushland pristine, and retaining its naturalness, is important to me and my native friends. Noxious weeds have a tendency to crowd out native species.



That's why Trees For Weeds Day, on Saturday 5th August, will be a big day at my place. For every bag of weeds taken to the Redland IndigiScapes Centre Nursery, Runnymede Road, at Capalaba, residents will receive a native tree for planting. Although there is a limit of five native trees per resident this is a great opportunity to add some bird attracting flora to your own backyard, as well as bees.

All weeds are welcome though the targeted ones this year include: dutchman's pipe, creeping lantana, molasses grass and coral creeper.



You don't have to be a gardening guru to pull a few weeds.
