Salmon Gums, Western Australia











On the way to Norseman I noticed some fabulous trees with pink trunks. I thought a combination of red soil, wind and rain had produced the pink colour but not so. They are Eucalyptus salmonophloia (Salmon Gums). The bark changes colour with the seasons and it has shiny glossy green leaves and small fruits.
I even found a town named after them.
