“Arthur Clay, member of the International Shade Tree Association and the Municipal Arborists Society of America, is a prominent horticulturalist with the Commonwealth Government in Canberra.
Walter Burley Griffin originated much of its present beauty from the gift made to all new householders in the form of 10 trees and 40 shrubs.
A growing new city or an expanding old one have much the same type of problems, no the least of which is he natural wish of all people to live in pleasant green surroundings. The species detailed are appropriate to many cities throughout the Southern hemisphere and can be used as a basis for planning a new garden lay-out, for renovating an old one, for landscaping an office or a factory, or even for landscaping public open spaces in general.”
