What are gumtrees in terms of gum and trees?
A gum tree is a type of eucalyptus tree. These are usually located in Australia. They are known for their strong smelling leaves and sticky "Gum" that comes from the bark of the tree.
It depend on how extensive the damage is. Sometimes they are so severely damaged that they don't regrow. However I have seen Gumtrees that had nothing but a couple of feet of shared wood sticking out of the ground sprout leaves and branches. the Australian bush turn a brilliant light green after there has been a mayor bush fire
While there are hundreds of different eucalyptus species in Australia, koalas live in and eat from only about 60 of the species, with their preferences limited to just 14 species as their primary food source, specifically, the subgenus Symphyomyrphus. Preferred eucalyptus species vary depending on their locality, so that the species eaten by Victoria koalas will be different to those eaten by north Queensland koalas. Koalas have been known to also eat the buds, flowers…
Gum trees reproduce by dropping seeds which germinate into small plants and grow into a reasonable sized tree in about 20 years. The other name for gum tree is eucalyptus tree. And no, you can't get chewing or bubblegum from gum trees. They are poisonous to eat but clear your nose if you smell them.
well the trunk on gum trees is very thin like imagine Paris Hilton as a tree and well there are little buds on the trees they are green like a grannysmith apples and they take them and can make gum out of it. Ha ha that is soooooooooooooo not true lol :) anyway a gum tree is very thin usually and people start spitting out their gum and sticking it on the tree. Over time…
mostly different types of rubber trees native to south America and Africa. also gum is a type of rubber ( not modern chewing gum but real gum from the 1800) so gum trees as well. remember all trees have rubber. it is the first stage of bark located under bark. the over bark peels of and the rubber under hardens and becomes bark.
Gum trees are found over the entire Australian continent - from coastal areas, to Alpine regions and the High Country, to deserts and arid areas. Different species adapt uniquely to their area. The gum trees favoured by koalas are mostly found in the eastern half of the continent, and the far south-western corner.
