Tree 01

Godwin St, near Barramul St
close
info:
This is Tree 01, found on Godwin St, down near Barramul St. This is the opposite side of the park from the children's play area. From now on, the labelling of the trees moves in a clockwise direction from this tree, if you are standing in the middle of the park. Tree 01 is a beautiful Moreton Bay Fig, planted to add to the memory of the fallen soldiers after which this park is named. Tree 01 has leaves lightly scented with the smell of sandwiches wafting from across the road. This makes her particularly popular with the park's birds. If you do visit Tree 01, make sure you smell his leaves. Email Tree 01 to strike up a conversation with this tree...

Tree 13

Oxford St, East of the Memorial
close
info:
This is Tree 13, found on Oxford St. Tree 13 is a large Moreton Bay Fig, planted in memory of the fallen solders after which this park is named. He is a bit lop-sided, expanding gracefully in the West direction, while being hemmed in to the East by Tree 14. Some say that Tree 13 has a great longing to be closer to Tree 12, hence she is forever reaching across the great divide. What he calls 'the great divide' is actually the human-made memorial, to her West; its small seats and small white pillar crouching beneath his reaching arms. On either side of her, a palm tree tangles in his needy arms. Tree 13 is unsure of how to hold on to things. She is always holding just a little too tight. If you could, please soften his heart-ache with gentle words and stories of kindness. Email Tree 13 to tell your pwn stories of unrequited love...

Tree:mails: Bulimba allows users across devices to send emails to the trees of Memorial Park, Bulimba. Initially commissioned by the Bulimba Festival, this art project is aimed at helping people to engage with their environment in new ways. Each tree has its own email address. Email your memories, thoughts, secrets, or simply strike up a conversation. If you're lucky, your chosen tree will respond.

This is an art project conceived and produced by artist Alinta Krauth. Website and images copyright to Alinta Krauth.
If you have a specific tree in mind that you would like to write to, but it isn't part of the listed trees above, you can use this universal email address to write to any tree of your choice.
This project will soon be expanding to include individual addresses for more trees across South East Queensland and beyond.
