Old Growth Mountain Ash

Ern Mainka

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans), Yarra Ranges National Park, Victoria, Australia.
_
This old giant (approx 350 year old) was known as The Furmston Tree (also The Von Mueller Tree). It was featured in early Victorian Railways and other tourism photographs of the 1930’s to 50’s era but taken from a different angle.
_
By 2000 it was decaying from the inside with a large open hollow on one side. It finally succumbed to strong winds and collapsed. It officially had a circumference at breast height (CBH) of 19.5 meters but being on a very steep slope made it difficult to measure.

Nikon F3. Infra-red B/W film, PS sepia toning. Photo taken 1996.
