Rainbow Eucalyptus" Hana, Maui, Hawaii The unusual phenomenon is caused by patches of bark shedding at different times. The different colours are therefore indicators of the age of the bark: Freshly shed outer bark will reveal the bright green inner bark. This darkens over time and changes from blue to purple and then reaches orange and maroon tones.
Trees are the oldest and the largest living things on earth. Some are weird, some extraordinary, some gorgeous, and some shaped by the human hand to fascinate and amuse. Please enjoy these images--or better yet, take a walk in the woods and greet them in person with appreciation. [caption id="attachment_7456" align="aligncenter" w
