Most Victorian prospectors would know Neville perry from Bet Bet.
The story tells of trouble he has had removing trees from a lease.

"Individual branches growing out of tree stumps were also counted as single trees by authorities, so one tree with three branches was officially three trees."


Sounds typical of some of the officials we meet out in the bush.

Sounds like you could use their own silly rules against them. Can't touch the trees, but you can't create a bushfire hazzard either!
