Stringy Bark

Eucalyptus obliqua

Stringy bark is a tall gum tree, and is one of the ash groups of eucalyptus.

It grows over a wide area of Tasmania and its thick bark helps it survive bush fires.

Stringy bark provides the most valuable general-purpose timber that Tasmania possesses.

It is strong and durable and is useful for piles, wharves, bridges and all classes of building works.
