We found these two Aboriginal scarred trees yesterday. Living and growing White Box trees. Big and old. The first tree is fantastic. The overgrowth of the bark is very deep over the scar. When I put my hand into the left side, my arm disappeared almost to my elbow.
Once you begin to see these trees, you find that they are waiting to be found throughout the bush. We came across some at Port Stephens in January. And over Easter we drove the New England Highway to the north coast of NSW and from our vehicle we saw Aboriginal scarred trees in the Country along the side of the road. Hiding in plain sight.
