Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper


“Historic Roads and Blaze Trees in the Albury Region” – since the 1840s, early colonial surveyors have blazed trees to mark out road and boundary alignments. As a form of living heritage, many blaze trees are now succumbing to the ravages of time. Peter Spooner from Charles Sturt University described his research, where he uses historic maps, field surveys and a citizen science approach, to investigate our oldest roads, and document the abundance and condition of old blaze trees in the Albury region.
