The Tree Project
CIGWELD is very proud to be helping out with the “The Tree Project” currently near the end of completion in Victorias’ rural North East. Located in Strathewen, a 10 metre high, solid iron Gumtree stands tall in commemoration of the loved ones who were lost in the tragic Black Saturday fires.
Over a tough 5 years, this magnificent structure came to life with the assistance of only volunteers. Persistence prevailed when on February 14 2016, the 3 tonne tree was erected for all to admire.
CIGWELD became involved in this project through our welding products, which were used to weld each and every one of over 3000 leaves onto the giant structure. Tireless days and nights went into this inspiring structure, and here at CIGWELD we are very glad our trusted welders got the job done.
