Author's notes

4 trees in total. I have no idea what these are... All of them flowering with many nut/pod things.

A bit of history. It is believed that these were among the thousands of trees planted on Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura post World War 1 in a scheme like Work for the Dole.

Very interesting to know Betty. I thought they looked like they were plonked there. A little out of place with the surrounding natives, but they are still really nice trees.

About 25 years ago I went through Nursery records of the ACT archives, that helped establish a strong relationship between whether a plant has become a weed and how long and how much it has been planted. One of the many things that distracted my research was records from Nurseries around Australia including Melbourne, Goulburn and Wagga sending Kurragong seeds to Charles Weston, who presumably used them to grow seedlings of which this tree is likely to be one, a real 'national" plantation.

There are definitely planted specimens on Mt Majura, for instance the beautiful avenue along the Mt Majura summit track. However I thought it is also an endemic species of the ACT region? The species spreads with assistance of birds: Currawongs eat Kurrajongs.

Yes Waltraud it is a species local to Mt Majura, but the plants on Mt Majura will have mixed genetic heritage. Some plants may have the genetic make-up of other local plants, but others will have a genetic heritage that relates to much of eastern Australia. I;m not saying this is a bad thing, it could for example make the Mt Majura population more relislent than elsewhere in the ACT.
