It appears that the native grass tree on this block is at least 200 years old and possibly older - they can live for up to 450 years old. They are also of huge significance to the Indigenous community. These plants do not transplant as they have a very complex root system. Any development could not take place within at least five meters of the plant, so as not to disrupt its fragile root system. So amazing to see such a spectacular grass tree has survived the city's development.
