Geocache Description:

Eucalyptus fastigata or Brown Barrel as it is commonly known as, is one of the common tree species around here.

Carbon dating of stumps indicate that many of these trees are around 800 years old.

It is a very popular cut timber that is supposed to be strong and durable and less prone to warping.  It is also very popular for logging.  It is fast growing in the moist and fertile soils where it grows naturally.  It is has a trunk that is straight and branches dont appear to its upper elevation, making cutting and cartage an easier and more profitable exercise.

For the first 20 years of its life, its sap wood is quite white making it one of the more suitable trees to make paper from.  Hence its popularity for paper means that most sawn timber from this species comes from Old Growth Forests like you are standing in.

This cache is the last along the ridge lines on this walk to the Darejo Tree.  From here it starts getting steeper.

Please ensure you have read the further details concerning safety at gc74qpx and gc6yy60 before attempting these caches.
