EUCALYPTS OF THE WHEATBELT

Western Australia's Wheatbelt has some remarkable eucalypts (or gum trees). Eight of the most widely planted ornamental gums in the eastern states are all from our Wheatbelt. But how many of the 159 species are commonly planted in WA? Not too many. We plant eastern states trees instead.
To find out more about these magnificent trees visit Malcolm French's Eucalypts of WA's Wheatbelt.
