A very interesting study of these trees that live in the clouds.

Maybe they do smell like Eucalyptus as seems like I think Eucalyptus for some reason when I look at these trunks.

JF Its only the leaves that have the pungent Eucalypt smell. But walking in the forest you would definitely be able to smell it.

This is a great photo, M. I recently was fascinated by a documentary on Australia and these trees. I learned the bark is a fast burning kindling and those fires that burn so mightily during your fire season can burn hotter than the surface temperature of the SUN!!!!
