Paperbark

At work, Trees

Exfoliating.
It is a Melaleuca, not sure what species exactly. I need to get myself a treespotting guide to Australia, there are so many different native trees!

  1. Melaleuca argentea? Apparently very similar looking to the bark of Melaleuca leucadendra, but not softly spongy to the touch like the latter species. I love the internet (but not as much as I love trees!).

    1. Could be. I find the internet sometimes helpful, but usually end up with more questions. Especially when I’m not next to the tree at the time. Some of the botanical garden or government sites have more info, but you have to pick from a list of names with not so many photos and I don’t know if the tree is native to this area or just planted here.

      1. You are right of course. There is no substitute for being right there with the tree itself. (except DNA testing maybe!). Good luck.
