We were made aware of this pegged tree in Sep 2021 by Clinton Bailey who also took and supplied the above photos in Sep 2021. Looking at the pictures, we knew that it was never fitted with a cabin so the initial thoughts were, that it was either a tree, pegged and climbed to look for an alernative/suitable location or it was a pegged tree to be used to get a quick bearing from that location when a local fire report came in. The location of the tree is within the old Yornup settlement which had it's own Forestry Depot. After some research at the Manjimup office by Clinton, it was established that the tree was indeed used to get a quick bearing from that location when a local fire report came in. We are still trying to find out what is contained in the Historical Site Donnelly 124 records (3rd photo above).
If you can add any more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
