Eucalyptus tricarpa or red iron bark is a close relative of the better known Eucalyptus sideroxylon which occurs to the North into New South Wales and Queensland. Red iron bark can be commonly seen as the dominant tree in woodland in the central Victorian Bendigo Goldfields Region where it grows on infertile shallow well drained soils. Red iron bark grows to a large tree up to 15 - 20 metres in height.
Eucalyptus tricarpa has distinctive deep furrowed dark red bark and contrasting grey foliage. This is an excellent specimen tree and adapts well to wetter climates and soil types. White to cream flowers
