I went out to offer some help – carrying branches that had been sawn off to the side. And was even given a saw of my own to use (though it turns out I’m no good and it gave me a blister!).
What was so nice was that throughout the morning various neighbours and their kids came out to help – everyone bringing tools that they had to hand (saws, axes, 4x4s with tows) to help clear the massive Eucalyptus. Teas, coffees and waters were offered out and everyone was in high spirits.
