Eucalypts (Eucalyptus)

Commonly known as a "Gum Tree", the Eucalypt or Eucalyptus tree dominates the Australian landscape with over 700 species. The term "Gum Tree" is derived from the habit of some eucalypt species to exude a sticky, gum-like substance from the trunk. The most important commercial use of eucalypts is in forestry where there has been considerable conflict between conservation and timber interests, particularly as the resistance to woodchipping and the move to preserve old growth forests have gained momentum. Some of the uses for Eucalypt timber is for building, furniture, woodchips, paper and fuel. Eucalypt oil extracted from the oils contained in the foliage have been used in medicine, industry and for perfumes. This album contains but a few of the 700 species, however others will be added as photos are taken.
