Amazing Rainbow Eucalyptus

I present to you the amazing Rainbow Eucalyptus. It looks like somebody has literally splashed a lot of colorful painting over a tree, but that is not the case. The Rainbow Tree has so many colors naturally, and can be found in New Guinea, New Britain, Sulawesi, and in Philippines where they use it for production of pulpwood. The Rainbow trees tend to be extremely tall, some of them up to 75 meters.

The strange thing about this tree is that it’s used in the manufacture of white paper. The reason why the tree has different colors is that patches of the bark are shed at different times, so it first turns blue, then orange, purple and maroon at last. So if you ever go to the places where the trees are located you should watch out for them, because they probably look stunning in real life.
