Oh no. The dreaded Casuarina undercut :D I've only seen, awe, maybe a few hundred of those!

Keep the updates coming mate, I've been slack on my thread and haven't been doing stuff all cutting.
You're right about the heat too. Has been strangely consistent temperatures across a wide part of Vic and SA. Even Mount Gambier, the coldest most miserable place in the state was the same temp as up here today.

It's interesting how the more cutting you do the more trees you find to cut :D
