Went for a walk this morning with the camera and remember telling JJ here that we had a tree similar to one he put up once.

This is the Scribby Bark Gum Tree.
The scribbly gum tree is a eucalyptus tree with a very smooth, pale trunk. The distinctive brownish 'scribbles' are made by the larvae of the tiny scribbly moth. These larvae are harmless to the tree.

Looks like what our pine beetles do to pine trees only it kills the tree.
