Manna Gums [Eucalyptus viminalis] is a magnificent tree species that occur in my local area. These trees can grow up to 90m tall, and continually shed their cream/white/grey bark in narrow strips which accumulate at the base of the tree or in forked limbs. Human skin also sheds in an ongoing basis, but unlike these trees, the process occurs more or less invisibly. This shedded bark is part of the growth process that occurs throughout the life-cycle of the tree and as it accumulates the forces of nature assist in its decomposition so that it returns to the soil and in turn nourishes further growth - indeed a cycle of life!
