FIFTEEN palm trees are looking for new homes.
For the past week, Our Shed volunteers have been working on clearing a path at the Eaglehawk YMCA.
During the process of making the new entrance into the YMCA’s kiosk area the palm trees had to be cut down.
Eaglehawk YMCA board member and Our Shed member Michael McKern said it would a waste if the trees didn’t go to new homes.
“We are asking anyone in the community if they would like to take any of the palm trees off our hands,” he said.
“In exchange if they could make a donation to Our Shed, it would be appreciated.”
The joint exercise to clean the space is set to finish in the next few weeks however production has slowed down.
“We wanted to create a new entrance so people could have access to the canteen from the lake and the skate park,” Mr McKern said.
“We can’t do too much more work on the site until it is all cleared.”
Our Shed manager Mark Polsen said it would be a shame if the trees had to be chopped up and thrown away. “We can only wait another week or so and then the trees will have to be ripped up, it is holding up the project,” he said.
If anyone is interested in the palm trees, contact Michael McKern on 0418 666 998 or Mark Polsen on 0401 510 470.
