Significant trees

Native apricot or peach tree,
one of the last in the Peachey Belt area
from which it gets its name.
Often an out of place tree in a new residential area is a reminder of what was there beforehand.  Old fruit trees in odd places, large palm trees or gum trees may be all that remains of an old homestead.  The National Trust have been working on significant tree list and have identified trees, indigenous and non from around the state.  Here is the list for the Playford area.
