Bloodwood - Eucalyptus Polycarpa


Artwork Description
The timber of this tree is favored for digging sticks because of its hard wearing durability. Galls appearing on this tree often contain a green grub which is eaten. During May, white flowers appear in sprays. This signals the time when the salmon come into the shallows at night to feed. It also indicates that Tern eggs are ready to be collected. Its bark is thick, scaly and gray-brown. The timber is a reddish color and extremely heavy, exuding a thick red gum when cut, hence the name. It is reported to be used as a fish poison and to have medicinal uses.
