Corymbia maculata(spotted gum). This is a large very attractive tree with mottled (spotted) trunk and a heavy dense canopy. Although mainly a sub-tropical species but adapts well to sites far removed from its natural range provided there is sufficient soil moisture and adeqaute soil depth.
Corymbia maculata can be frost sensitive as a seedling so some care needs to be taken in the first year or so but after that they are able to withstand very cold conditions. This is an excellent timber species and is being grown increasingly in plantations as a medium to long term quality timber resource. It is also an excellent specimen and amenity tree where space away from buildings is available.
