On National Tree Day WCS celebrates Banyule's own Studleyesis
Endangered in Victoria and of regional significance, this tree is a naturally occurring hybrid of the Swamp Gum (E. ovata) and River Red Gum (E. camaldulensis). Identified in Kew, Viewbank and Watsonia, the majority of Victoria’s population of Eucalyptus x studleyensis occurs in Banyule. There is a magnificent specimen near the Somerset Drive entrance to the Banyule Flats Reserve and a group of smaller trees occurs in Yallambie. There are also some specimens at the Simpson Army Barracks which are not believed to be in any danger from the North East Link project. Join WCS at our National Tree Day planting this coming Sunday 29 July.
