Brown Barrel, Cut Tail
Description: I saw this species growing at the Mt. Tomah Botanic Garden near Sydney. The key to successful growth is uniform rainfall throughout the year. This is a tall tree with a large crown and fibrous brown, stringy bark. The bark is often seen hanging in the crown. It is found native in a widespread range of New South Wales and Victoria. It may flower only every five years or so.
