White mahogany is a common eucalyptus tree of Eastern Australia. In the northern part of Sydney, where this tree grows on clay soils, the indigenous name is Barayly. Sometimes referred to as the yellow stringybark in parts of Queensland. However, despite the rough and somewhat stringy bark, this tree is considered by scientists to be in the mahogany group of eucalyptus. It was by its bark that I was able to identify the tree, because it definitely has yellow, stringy bark. The species is well regarded for the high quality of its timber. Medium to tall-sized tree to 45 m (147 ft).
Currently very dry due to drought, but this species seems to cope with that without too much stress. Spotted in Crows Nest National Park, located northwest of Brisbane. Very rocky terrain, mostly granite soils, and dry sclerophyll forest.
