    I have finally joined Arboristsite.com!!! I am looking for some information on identifying this eucalyptus tree that is common in California. I know it’s not a blue gum, or a red ironbark. I think it is a grey ironbark, but I am not certain. Can anyone help me identify this tree?

    It’s definitely not a bluegum or red iron bark, the bark appears to be a bit to soft looking to be a grey iron bark, looks to be more a stringy bark to me

    I will go out on a limb and say 'white ironbark eucalyptus', can you get pic's of the limbs because those are different from the trunk,

    Hi Guys. This looks like beautiful Jarrah to me, bark is a giveaway. These are endemic to the South West corner of Western Australia. I spent many years in Perth where Jarrah is sought after for it's beautiful pink wood. Have been on many firewood expeditions collecting Jarrah. Nice sweet smell when burning, great for cooking as well.

    Some big specimens shown below:
