Eucalyptus deglupta (Wikipedia)
Eucalyptus deglupta is a tall tree, commonly known as the Rainbow Eucalyptus, the Mindanao Gum, or the Rainbow Gum. It is the only Eucalyptus species found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere. Its natural distribution spans New Britain, New Guinea, Ceram, Sulawesi and Mindanao.
The unique multi-hued bark is the most distinctive feature of the tree. Patches of outer bark are shed annually at different times, showing a bright green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones.
In the present day this tree is grown widely around the world in tree plantations, mainly for pulpwood used in making paper. It is the dominant species used for pulpwood plantations in the Philippines.
The Eucalyptus deglupta tree is cultivated as an ornamental tree, for planting in tropical and subtropical climate gardens and parks.
The showy multi-coloured streaks that cover the trunk are a distinctive landscape design element.

The tight frame is putting the trunk in evidence. The pointy of view is showing the details and colors of the Eucalyptus deglupta trunk. The late afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

This is a highly interesting and colorful natural phenomenon indeed. The multicolored bark looks like a graffiti painting, but much more aesthetic and beautiful. Thanks for such an informative and well-illustrated presentation of this unique plant!

Effective tight framing focussing on just the waxy textured bark, & colourful secretions of resin & gum. I don't think I've ever seen a rainbow gum tree before & I live in Australia! A very informative accompanying note. Tfs!

Bonjour, chère Ally,
C'est vrai que cet arbre prend des allures de peinture avec ces différentes couleurs. Très bon sujet fort bien exploité.
Bravo pour l'intérêt et l'originalité.

Fantastic composition that looks more like a painting, superb sharpness that clearly shows the fine texture, with so many shades of color, the colors are like brush strokes.
A good job and a different picture. Great photo of WS also gives us an idea of the impressive height of this tree, which sees only the trunk.
Have a nice weekend.

Your photo brought me more information about this beautiful tree. I saw this tree from the distance but I never took a close look like you did. The trunk has georgous colors like a painting. Great clouse up photo which shows all details. Well done!

This is so well seen and captured with the bark of the tree looking like a canvas of an oil painting. Sharp details and good education for me as well.
Thanks and have a nice day my friend.
