Description :

In 1836 or '37, European settlers at Reeves Point near Kingscote on Kangaroo Island sewed European plants. The Mulberry Tree is thought to be the last surviving plant from this early plantation.

After so many years, however, the tree needs a bit of a lift. This article outlines the installation of a new support system for the tree.
