Eucalyptus camaldulensis

A common and widespread Eucalypt; found in Grassy woodlands and around water courses. This Eucalypt grows very wide from a central base and only has a height of about 45m. The bark is grey with brown or red patches and flakes during summer/autumn. The trees were used by
Aboriginals to make canoes and its bark used to treat burns and diarrhoea. These trees provide great habitat for many birds, reptiles and small mammals but come under threat from grazing, dieback, lack of natural regeneration, nutrient runoff and weed invasion.”
