Blue Gum Bark

While exploring forestry tracks in Tasmania’s south we discovered this amazing Blue Gum tree which had shed its bark in one complete piece. It is unusual to see such a massive piece of bark but its also unusual to see such a big old tree. Many of the trees in Tasmania were logged in the early 1900s and usually all that remain are huge tree stumps.

Its more common to find massive tree stumps in Tasmania, a throwback to the early logging days
