I asked the late Ian Brooker, Australia’s foremost Eucalypt expert, and he said that spiral bark in Eucalypts of this kind was a genetic variation within the species.
You will need to hurry to photograph the tree. It is about to be felled.

I’m captivated by the spiral bark in Fleur’s pictures. I’m off to photograph them myself, I like to photograph trees! Can someone tell me if the spiralling bark denotes a particular species or is it just a quirk of the individual tree?
