One of the features of Australia, and especially the ‘Outback’ (countryside far away from cities and towns) is it’s magnificent trees, of which Eucalypts are perhaps the most iconic.
Often referred to as ‘Gum Trees’ locally (because of the high sticky resin
content that often squeezes out from their bark) there are numerous genus types and one of the most beautiful are the ‘Ghost Gums’.
This one is native to my part of Oz and is a Darling Range Ghost Gum (Eucalyptus laeliae). It’s not all that old, around 40 years or so but is just about fully matured and stands some 20 m (65ft) high. 🙂
