Preservation of Native Flora
Preservation of Native Flora.
The Railway Department does whatever is possible to preserve the native flora on lands under its control. It will not sanction the cutting of trees except in cases of necessity, and all members of the Department are instructed not to remove native plants or greenery from railway reserve or other Crown land for decorative purposes.
