Corymbia dallachiana

Scientific NameCorymbia dallachiana
CategoriesTree
Common Name(s)Dallachy's Ghost Gum
FamilyMyrtaceae

Description

"Tree to 15 m tall. Forming a lignotuber. Bark smooth throughout, white to cream and pinkish grey, shedding in thin brown-grey patches, rarely with a very short stocking of rough ± tessellated grey bark at the base of the trunk." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)

Notes

Corymbia dallachiana has a smooth, stark white trunk. We observe this attractive ghost gum from around Woolein NW of Biloela heading north-west. Despite demand for its seed in mine rehabilitation, little is collected owing to a lack of accessibility. It's far less abundant than comparable taxa such as Corymbia tessellaris. For operators looking to establish the species, small amounts of seed could be obtained and used to produce significant numbers of transplants.

Historical Notes

Distribution

"Stately ghost gum tree endemic to Queensland where it is quite widespread east of a line from Coen to Jericho and south from Bathurst Bay to Rockhampton and Emerald, recorded also from Shaw Island in the Whitsunday Group." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)
