Boy. the trunk is really scaly on those trees.

Was the bark ever used for other purposes?

Thanks for the photos!

Herb

Nice job!

Paper bark trees are very popular in Southern California, for decorative landscaping.

I'm pretty sure our Aboriginal tribes used them for carrying food stuffs, you can peel it into very thin layers. Hopefully will get the chance to finish this one on the weekend, although working Saturday

Melaleucas a very good for boggy soils where not much else will grow.
