Mountain gray gum,
Monkey gum, Spotted gum
Description: A variable species that can grow from a small, to very large tree. It thrives in relatively cool climates and has smooth, yellow-gray bark that peels in patches. It is found in the Warrumbungle, Otway and Geriwerd ranges and tablelands of Victoria and New South Wales. I have noted new stem growth to be square and this definitely is a fast growing species.
