- "Aboriginal scarred trees are trees that have been scarred by Aboriginal people through the deliberate removal of bark or wood. There are numerous reasons why Aboriginal people took bark from trees, it being versatile and plentiful material that could be used for a wide variety of commonplace tasks, including the construction of shelters, watercraft and containers. Other forms of tree wounding include deliberate marking (such as tree carving), the removal of wood for artefact manufacture, and the cutting of the centre of the hollow tree for collecting food or the manufacture of holds for tree climbing."--P. 6-7."DEC 2005/54"--T.p. verso.Includes bibliographical references.
