A large Australian eucalyptus which yields very hard, greasy timber.
- Eucalyptus microcorys, family Myrtaceae.
- Among the timber trees are 300 Tasmanian blackwoods and 200 tallow-woods.
- We followed a rather overgrown track through a gracious stand of tallow-woods and through some lush bush - a bit further than Alex and Marion have ever been themselves, so it was an explorative walk for them too.
For editors and proofreaders
