The trees up around the border between New South Wales and Queensland are very different to the ones I had on my property. Still Eucalypts but a soft dusty pink bark and underneath a green and beige trunk. Very beautiful. Taken at Millmerran yesterday.
One of our most beautiful gum trees, the scribbly gum has lots of scribbles like this on its trunk. They are made by small beetles burrowing under the bark and when the bark falls off it looks like someone scribbled with a pencil on the tree.
