Swamp Mahogany

Eucalyptus robusta

The forground shows 3 or 4 of these trees planted in 2005. The inset at the left is of the bark of one of them. They have large robust leaves, even at this age, and have reached a height of around 6 metres, but are yet to flower.

Because it is a winter flowering species it is an important part of food stocks for a number of birds and small mammals, some of which are threatened or endangered.
