Red Gum

This is a tree I think we don't see in the mountains. It was different enough to attract my attention.

Sydney Red Gum - Angophora costata

  1. Interesting use of the double-negative in your text this morning.

    I think Red-Bums are the variety that drop limbs is the tree is under stress of any sort. Internal protection, I suppose.

  5. I've not seen that type of gum tree here - but love the texture of the bark.

  6. There's nothing better than feeling the smooth limbs and trunk of a gum tree after it has shed its bark.
    Did you shimmy up and have a feel?

  7. There are quite a few red gums on the central coast too. Must be a coastal variety.
