First step in tree-top walk

THE first tower of the
world's longest, tallest tree-

trucked to the South-West.
	The 7m steel tower, the
shortest of 12 in the 570m-
long construction, will be
installed in the Tahune State
Forest over the next few
days.
    Airwalk site manager

completed in June.
	The tallest tower will be
32m high, with all compo-
nents pre-fabricated in
Launceston.
	Visitors will be able to
