Eucalyptus bridgesiana. APPLE BOX. Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland
MYRTACEAE (Myrtle family)

Resemblance of the gray furrowed bark to that of the apple tree gives this tree its name. However, it is a tall forest tree rising with a straight bole to the lofty branches, which are also rough-barked out to the branchlets. There is a single tree east of the Mausoleum about 12 yards into the arboretum on a diagonal from the intersection of Arboretum and Palm Drive, and several others are near the northwest intersection of Arboretum and Lasuen. The buds/flowers are in an umbel of sevens with protruding valves in fruit as shown in the illustration. When found on the ground one or more capsules are usually missing. The leaves, same green color on both sides, are narrow (1.5-2.5 cm wide), to 20+ cm long, narrowing to a pointed tip. This species is placed in the seemingly heterogeneous Series Viminales, Fl. Australia, 19:344 (1988), including other campus eucalypts E. viminalis, the type, E. globulus, E. macarthurii, E. gunnii, E. cinera, and E. pulverulenta.
