Significance of tree

This tree is in my front courtyard & I see it everyday. In summer it creates shade & the cockatoos love the seeds/berries. In autumn the leaves turn a great array of reds & yellows & then fall to be collected & added to my compost bin. Many other bird species roost in it throughout the year. So this tree pleases, feeds, shades & shelters many species. (Included green leaves & some wigs for your dyeing project. The bark doesn’t come off easily.)
