Rationale
This artwork symbolises the rapid and recent growth of the suburb of Salisbury North. Urban development has been matched by the growth of the community spirit, which continues to flourish. The trees increase in size, indicating the initial rapid expansion of the suburb from 1950. With the use of trees as a symbol of growth the artists wish to draw on attention to the beauty of the local area and a reminder that growth may be occurring all around us. The leaves in the tees point to the sky, as do the leaves on a sapling, symbolising a forward-looking community.
