WINTERS FLAT PRIMARY SCHOOL
VALONIA OAKS PLANTING DAY 


On Thursday, 18th August, 2016 the school replanted 10 of the Valonia Oaks that died, plus an extra 14 = 24 new oaks!!
We invited all parents, friends and community members to come along and share this special tree planting day with us.


A few facts about the Valonia Oaks -
·     Oak plants and acorns were imported from Turkey in wooden boxes with glass lids by George Cunnack in 1879. George owned the tannery that was where our oval is now.   
·     Acorn caps were used in the tanning process and replaced wattle bark, which was nearly extinct in the area.
·     The oaks were planted in 1879 which makes the three remaining trees 136 years old!
·     Cunnack’s Valonia Oak Plantation was the first planting of Valonia Oaks in Australia.
·     In 1893 they produced their first acorns which were spread around the country.
