Eucalyptus Jacksonii also known as the Red Tingle, the flowering cycle when the tree is about 30 years old! It produces small white flowers with a bumper crop every four years in the late Summer and early Autumn. This cycle continues for the life of the tree, up to around 400 years old! Trees can reach a height of 50-60 meters, with a base circumference of up to 20 meters – they are known to be the largest buttressing Eucalypt.
The Tingle can be identified by it’s rough fibrous bark of grey-red colour and has a restricted range extending over 6000 hectares between the Deep River and Bow River in Denmark, Western Australia.
This particular beautifully gnarled tree-lady is known as “Grandmother Tingle” and is thought to be around 300 years old.
