The Pines Campground at Araps - What's happening! 16-Feb-2012 At 5:17:03 PM Old_Man
Kieran, I was there on the day; on the scene in time to see them finish it off. The master was showing his apprentices how.
As for the experts knowing what they're on about, that's a tricky one. Gravity will have its way with all trees eventually, and on average, dead ones sooner than live (I'm guessing). As a statistician you'd know about false +ves (trees designated dangeroos that aren't) and false -ves (those not so designated that fall on your tent). My impression post-Grampians fires was that the ratio of false / all +ves was absurdly high; I couldn't actually sit under them long enough to get proof, before they were all sawn down. But it's what you'd expect, given that DSE hires the experts to say which are unsafe; they naturally tilt their judgement to minimise getting caught out.
