The Colorful Tree - Beautiful!

These trees may look as if they have been painted by hand, but their colorful coating is completely natural. This interesting looking tree is called Eucalyptus deglupta, commonly known as the Rainbow Eucalyptus, and also known as the Mindanao Gum, or the Rainbow Gum.

The multi-coloured stripes on its trunk comes from patches of outer bark that are shed every year different times, showing the bright-green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones. Eucalyptus deglupta is the only Eucalyptus species found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere.

It grows naturally in New Britain, New Guinea, Ceram, Sulawesi and Mindanao. Now, this tree is cultivated widely around the world, mainly for pulpwood used in making paper, and also for ornamental purposes.
