SOME COMMON TREES OF TOODYAYThe Toodyay Naturalists' Club, with financil assistance from the Toodyay Land Conservation District Committee, produced a brochure in 1992 titled SOME COMMON TREES OF TOODYAY, part of a nature series. Although nearly 25 years old it is still relevant today. Click here to view and download.
EUCALYPTS OF THE WHEATBELTWestern Australia's Wheatbelt has some remarkable eucalypts (or gum trees). Eight of the most widely planted ornamental gums in the eastern states are all from our Wheatbelt. But how many of the 159 species are commonly planted in WA? Not too many. We plant eastern states trees instead.
To find out more about these magnificent trees visit Malcolm French's Eucalypts of WA's Wheatbelt.
