Beloved and iconic, gum trees can be found all across the Sunshine Coast and North Brisbane regions. Did you know there are nearly 900 different varieties of Gum Trees? These beautiful natives offer a unique habitat for koalas and other native animals. Eucalyptus oil is highly sought after and the timber is perfect for unique furniture and flooring. These towering trees, typically grow to 45m in height and varieties like the Forest Red Gum, Spotted Gum and Iron Barks are commonly found throughout Brisbane.
At O’Brien’s Tree Care our goal is always to preserve native trees where we can. With proper care and maintenance, Gum Trees can be the centrepiece of any garden. Because of the height, narrow trunks and growth patterns, special care must be taken when caring for or, if need be, removing them.
