Southeast Australia temperate forests

WWF Abstract

The trees of this ecoregion are as interesting as their names. Among many eucalyptus trees found here, the scribbly gum stands out. This crooked, gnarled tree has uneven branches. Its smooth bark falls off in flakes, leaving behind scribbly lines from insect larvae. White stringybark, another interesting tree, is medium-sized and fast-growing with fragrant white blossoms. As the name implies, the rough, thick bark has stringy fibers, giving it an appearance similar to that of a coconut husk.
