Jacaranda trees


At this time of the year most residents and visitors delight in the beauty of our Jacaranda trees. 

As they bloom for approximately one month a year, I would like to see the Clarence Valley Council, when they have to replace or plant a new tree, plant various flowering trees including natives.

This will ensure Grafton looks beautiful all year round. I also feel another important fact, it will assist the dwindling bee population.
