Eucalyptus grandis

The Grandis

The tallest tree in New South Wales – Australia. Yesterday’s photo covered the bottom of the tree on the approach to it – today’s photo shows the top of it.

A correction concerning the location of the tree is also in order. Yesterday I said it was located in Wang Wauk State Forest – and it once was. It hasn’t sprouted legs and moved elsewhere, but it has now been included in the Myall Lakes National Park.

The photo at right is of the pathway that leads to the tallest tree in New South Wales, Australia. It is a Eucalyptus grandis (Flooded Gum), located in the Wang Wauk State Forest, to the north of Bulahdelah.

The tree is thought to be over 400 years old and some 84.3 metres high. It is 2.7 metres across at its base.
