Fighting for the Trees details the history of the Blackburn and District Tree Preservation Society since its inception in 1959 up until the end of 2016. During this period, far-sighted residents, initially in Blackburn, but ultimately throughout the City of Whitehorse, believed that community action, political lobbying and perseverance could, and would, preserve and enhance the local and wider environment for the benefit of all. Whitehorse residents owe these people a deep sense of gratitude for the green and leafy character of Whitehorse today – a jewel in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
