Frantic forest


Scribbly Gums display dendritic forms taken to outrageous extremes. They have a fascinating penchant for manifesting chaos theory while other Eucalypt species growing in close proximity exhibit tall, orderly growth habits. The stark contrast of the pale bark versus darkness allows a real appreciation of their strange and beautiful forms.
