BRITTLE GUM, EUCALYPTUS MANNIFERA
This snowfall was so heavy I had to keep shaking it off my umbrella. Brittle gums are full of character and one of my favourite local trees. This fine specimen is close to my home. It’s maybe several hundred years old and has survived numerous snows, storms, droughts and fires.
