Texture of eucalyptus bark. Eucalyptus tree has relatively thin bark that routinely peel
off. Eucalyptus tree appear to have a large number of varieties. Some mature eycalyptus seem
to be in a permanent state of bark peeling. While in some plants this creates a really clean
looking tree trunk, in others, it gives a really unclean and sloppy appearence, with
large chuks of bark in semi-suspended state. There is a variety called Rainbow Eucalyptus, which
have a nice mild colored tree trunk.
There are many eucalyptus trees at the Coyote Hills Regional Park,
the trees in this photo are at the Visitor Center parking lot.
