Gumtree Hug - Magnet
The eucalyptus tree, also known as the gumtree, is a large evergreen that is only found in Australia and Tasmania. Gumtrees constitute over 75% of the tree population of Australia. They grow fast and straight, and reach tremendous heights, they have existed in Australia for uncountable centuries, withstanding severe fires, dry climate and supplied animals with a reliable home and food source.
However all this might end to make way for new houses to take the place where forests have thrived for thousands of years. Without the gumtree we will not have certain medicines and the koalas will not have existed, as well as many other native Australian species, and the Australian countryside will be plain, barren and, no longer iconic.
