Propagating the future with the rarest Tasmanian Eucalyptus. – Spring Bay Mill (Tas)
Most people living in Tasmania would never have heard, let alone seen the Morrisby gum, Eucalyptus morrisbyi. It’s one of the rarest trees in the world and certainly the rarest Eucalypt in Tasmania. Growing near the state capital Hobart, it has been in gradual decline since the first colonists arrived in Tasmania.
The Spring Bay Mill on Tasmania’s East Coast has a mission to care for the natural environment. Once the home of the largest Eucalypt woodchip Mill in the world, it is now a unique environmental retreat for celebrations, weddings, entertainment, and events. Part of the Mill’s extensive landscape restoration is an initiative to establish a new colony of these wonderful small Eucalypts on site. This will form part of the Mills new Eucalyptus refugia with 20 young Morrisby gum trees being planted during the Eucalypt Day week.
The plantings will commemorate 2022 National Eucalypt Day.
