It's a Eucalyptus, or is It?

Dropped by at a local branch of Long Beach public library and solicited the aid of the always helpful librarian for any ref book on trees. We browsed through the book and showed me the page on  eucalyptus  which should have a lot of variations. These shrubs/trees are planted throughout the city streets and on the banks of freeway exits and entrances. A stone’s throw from where we stood were eucalyptus trees on the street center island, or is it?


  1. I don't know much about trees, but I like the leaves of this tree against the blue sky.

  2. Have seen many eucalyptus in California, the best way to know for sure is by the smell.

  3. I think it is a eucalyptus.

    It is hard to tell if it a normal colored bark or not. Some have white or salmon colored bark, like salmon gum, ghost gum or lemon? gum.


Please scoopwords as you may, then leave a comment so I may follow your wordscooping, too. Let's all have good days for the rest of the week. BTW, have noted that I won't be able to return visits due some have not made available/ shared their profile yet. Have you?
