Eucalyptus blakelyi, known as the Blakely's red gum is a common eucalyptus tree of the tablelands of New South Wales and adjacent areas in Queensland and Victoria. Growing to 10–24 metres (33–79 ft) tall, the trunk is smooth, with shedding scales of bark, revealing varying colours of pink, white and grey.[1] This species is often a victim of eucalyptus dieback.[2]
