Talles of the Woods (1)

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Arthur Plottier, Aug 29, 2008.

  1. This image is a capture of a very small part in the bark of a Paperbark tree in the coast of Queensland, Asutralia.
    I put the number 1 on the thread name becaus e Tales of the Woods is a serie of images with details in the bark of trees.
    I am looking forward for your comments
    The images are not abstracts
    Cheers

    Arthur - fantastic image! Could you kindly tell us a little about that tree?
     
  5. Thank you all for your comments.
    The Paperbark tree is an Australian native and is called Paperbark because its bark peels in layers thin like paper. There are different types of this tree with different bark characteristics. They are very tolerant to "wet feet" and when wet the color tones are changing dramatically.
    I will post more images in the coming weeks for your reference.
    If you cannot wait the series is in my page www.plottier.net
    Cheers
     
  6. For the American members here is some info about the distribution of paperbark tree in the U.S.
    It was introduced in USA in the 1900's and it is a pest over there. Typical problem when the "do gooders" introduce plants in a different eco system. I guess that we humans never learn.
    Cheers
     
  7. Very interesting tree and good photo.

    Cheers
