No, this is not an exposition on shock jocks or pompous politicians.
Every year I marvel at the lovely colours and textures of our eucalypts when they are shedding old bark. This, in addition to their unique flowers make them amazing, and underappreciated by most Australians.
The arboretum is a good place to see the range of bark types, particularly in the summer/autumn. This Foxypress shows the progression of bark regrowth in brown mallet, and I hope you enjoy the sample of other trees below.
