One of Bathurst Regional Council’s initiatives for last year’s bicentenary celebrations was the planting of 200 red maples, each of which was assigned the name of a local citizen who has made a significant contribution to the city during their life.

Those advanced specimen deciduous trees are already looking a picture as their colours take on a striking autumn appearance.

The initial planting starts from near the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) building on the corner of the Mitchell Highway and Bradwardine Road and extends virtually to the intersection of Suttor Street.

Mayor Gary Rush said after discussions it was decided that up to six more Living Legend trees could be added every year, although this figure had not been set in stone.

“It could be just one or two, we really don’t know,” he said.

“We won’t be going to the general public for nominations like we did when we worked out the initial 200 Living Legends. Instead, we will work through and review the list of people we have from those nominations and consider some of those for inclusion.

“Saying that, council would be only too happy to hear from anyone in the community who believes there is someone who deserves to become a Living Legend that hasn’t already been named.”

Cr Rush said there is plenty of room for more trees.

“The plan is to continue planting them along Bradwardine Road, then keep them going past the intersection of Suttor Street and down past the former Walmer Park rugby ground all the way down to Eglinton Road near All Saints’ College,” he said.

“An announcement will be made each Proclamation Day of the names to be put on the plaque underneath each of the maple trees to be added to that initial planting.”

Cr Rush said the new trees would be put in place every July during tree planting week.

He said that winter date was also the ideal time for deciduous trees to be planted because they were dormant and without leaves.

“It will be a special place to drive through,” he said.
