Note from Curator : Lexa writes : A staggering 24,000 species of Australian native plants have been identified with around 800 being native Gum trees (eucalypts). Australia’s uniqueness comes its geography to the rest of the world. Originating some 50million years ago after the separation of Gondwana. Adapting to fire from their seeds as the land became dry and arid in most areas. Some common types of bark include: Stringybark – large ‘spongy strings’ of bark peel off the trunk. Ironbark – impregnated with Kino (sap) produces rich deep red to black colours. Rough and deeply furrowed. Box – Short box like fibres of bark. Tessellated – distinctive flakes that can be broken off. Ribbon – peels off in long, thin pieces. Scribbly gum – zig zag tracks are the tunnels of the larve from the scribbly gum moth. Types of gum trees include: Rainbow – Ghost – Scribbly – Blue – the long list goes on. Enjoy the uniqueness of these barks nature has to offer and have a close up look at the beauty of bark in your part of the world.
