This tree tower was built with help of a grant from the Bicentennial Committee, hence it's name. At some stage (when??), the name 'Warren' was changed to David Evans.
To the best of our knowledge, this tree tower was never an active fire lookout; it was built for tourists to climb!

The above photos, taken during construction in 1988, were supplied by John Evans. John wrote: 1st; Part of the rigging, before the steel went up. 2nd; Hazardous limb (45m up) from adjacent tree that we blew off. Used electrical det cord, sacked the (pommy) rigger because I told him 3 times to turn all radios off while we were doing it. He didn’t, could have blown us sky high. 3rd; After fitting the midway platform. 4th; Finished!

The above photos, taken in 2012, were supplied by Andre Belterman.
