Swamp Gum or Mountain Ash, Eucalyptus regnans

What we love about this tree:
It has an incredible flared base that dominates the forest around it.


Announced in the local newspaper as possibly Australia’s largest tree, the Kermandie Queen is a fantastic specimen of a giant gum tree. There’s been talk of building an access track to see this tree – hopefully one day in the not-too-distant future it will be a prime tourist attraction in the Southern Forests.
