1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    Being an ex chippy, I appreciate seeing timber I've used in it's original condition. Stopped to take in some Jarrah regrowth forest today. Jarrah, for those that don't know is a hard wood that was used extensively for building over here. Was even exported to UK in the 19th century to pave roads with blocks then cover them with asphalt. I grew up pounding 3 and 4 inch nails thru this stuff. Believe me, it's hard. Thought it would be good to see some other famous oz trees.
    What you got ?

    In Dark Corner, I think the tree in the foreground is a squiggly or a Peppermint Gum

    Narrow leaf peppermint and the white tree looks to be a brittle gum.

    In the Buckland Valley.

    Not real sure. Possibly a Brittlegum again. So many of these white trunked trees look similar. You have to check by leaf and/or seed pod to fully determine. I’d go Brittlegum if I had to choose. Base of Mt Buffalo.

    A photo of a old Forestry Department blaze on what was known as a Survey Tree. It has Alpha Numeric carvings into the trunk to help the Forestry workers locate their position in the forest tracks.Forestry maps had Alpha notation East - West and Numbers running North - South on each map sheet.This image is on a back road between Balinup and Greenbushes on my way to the No Name Rally in 2016. Jarrah tree and still going strong .1.5 m Trunk with a 15 m radius canopy IMG_0001.JPG

    A little hard to tell Jak but it does look like a peppermint going by the bark and the stringy section below plus what I can make out from the foliage in the trees in the background.
