In the above link you find terrific pictures of this Australian native tree!
I also found a very interesting article about the aucalyptus salubris tree in The Conversation here:
“E. salubris is a dominant species forming woodlands on deep soils east of the Darling Range. And while much of its former range in the Wheatbelt of Western Australia has been cleared, extensive populations of E. salubrisremain in the astonishing stronghold of the Great Western Woodlands.
Those who have walked in a mature woodland understand the pleasure of wandering unimpeded in the shade of widely spaced trees.
The Great Western Woodlands offers this experience on a grand scale. At around 16 million hectares they are the largest tracts of intact temperate woodlands on Earth, occupying an area larger than England and Wales combined.
And it is not just size that is impressive about these woodlands.
The Great Western Woodlands are a renowned hotspot for eucalypt diversity, home to around 30% of Australia’s eucalypt species in just 2% of its land area.
As one of the more common species throughout the area, E. salubris plays a critical ecological role, providing habitat for several threatened bird species including the rotund and charismatic Mallee fowl.”
And there is more. Please go to the link:
