Also known as Wild Gum or Ribbon Gum, this tree is widely distributed in the cooler South-eastern regions of Australia, and in Tasmania as well. The leaves are one of the favorites of Koalas. The high sugar content of the sap makes the trunk also a food source for tree dwelling marsupial mammals. The timber is easily workable but has low durability. The tallest known exemplar is in Tasmania and reaches the unusual impressive height of 89 m.
