Theft of significant potted plants from Australian National Botanic Gardens

A range of significant and unique potted plant specimens, many of which have important historic and conservation value and would be difficult (or in some cases impossible) to replace, has been stolen from the ANBG. A list of plant species is available here, in the hope that some may be found and returned. Some trees are 20+ years old. The list identifies some trees that have been specifically identified as possible bonsai subjects.

The ANBG would appreciate any assistance in locating these trees and ask that if you find them please contact Joe McAuliffe (Nursery supervisor) on 02 62509413 and Joe will contact the police. Please do not take any personal risks if you do come across any of these trees – just call Joe.

Here is an indicative photo to give an idea of the size and general appearance.
