Eucalyptus rubida or 'candlebark' is a large 20 - 30 metres+ tree primarily of the lower slopes of the Great Dividing Range in New South Wales and Victoria. It also occurs in Tasmanian and in the Mount Lofty Ranges around Bridgewater where these magnificent trees are visible from the South Eastern Freeway entering Adelaide. These large trees have straight smooth white trunks (sometimes motteld) and passerbys often mistakedly refer to these trees as 'ghost comes'. They should not be confused with the ghost gums of Central Australia (Eucalyptus papuana).
They are splendid trees well suited to higher rainfall areas on higher quality soils. They will grow quickly and quite large so not recommended for siting near buildings and other fixed assets.
