Summary
Dwarfed by this giant Marara, the men were going about the business of cleating, an activity that occupied most of their days in the determination to tame the landscape for the purposes of dairying. Because of the difficulty of transporting timber off the mountain, this beautiful tree was felled and then burnt. It was located in the gully east of the present Velvet Downs road turn off. Four lifts up on their springboards to get above the massive buttresses. Top left: Alex Gillespie (always guaranteed to climb higher than anyone else) Top right: Arthur Sprenger, Centre (dark shirt) Fred Nutley, (white shirt) Ben Gillespie, Left: Charlie Brown, Right: Jim Ramsey.--Information provided with photograph
