Physical Description

· Large mature jarrah tree, and;
· Protected at the base by a wooden raised platform.


This King Jarrah Tree which is four kilometres east of Manjimup just off
Perup Rd has an interesting story about how it survived the early timber
industry. In 1910 a man by the name of Bert Blakers heard that this large
jarrah tree was due to be felled the next day. Recognising it as special,
he went into the forest and marked it ‘to be protected’. To reassure
himself that he had made the correct decision he got on his pushbike and
rode to Bridgetown to speak personally to his boss Mr Brockman who
agreed with his decision. This early conservation endeavour allows
locals and tourists in 2005 to continue to admire a very old mature tree.
