Australian Wormy Chestnut

Eucalyptus Obliqua, Eucalyptus Sieberi, Eucalyptus Fastigata

Trees are affected by wildfires, years of drought and attack by insects. Flood and strong winds stunt their growth with each piece showing nature's signature. Deep red gum veins formed by fire, ambrosia beetle marks, pin holes and squiggly worm marks are all evident. Also known as Southern Blackbutt, Chestnut.
