Rainbow Eucalyptus

Rainbow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) - the only species of eucalyptus, which grows in the northern hemisphere. Besides the fact that eucalyptus grows to 70 meters in height, it also shines like a rainbow: its bark can be painted in yellow, green, orange and even purple.

An unusual phenomenon is due to cortical areas, flaking at various times. Different colors - indicators of age crust: recently lost, the outer bark is a bright green color. Over time, the bark darkens and changes from blue to purple and then reaches a maroon and orange. It turns a kind of natural camouflage

Rainbow eucalyptus are used worldwide for treatment to a special ingredient to create the paper. This is the ideal wood for creating high-quality white paper. Eucalyptus wood is chemically or mechanically processed in a special dry fibrous material, which is then soaked in water

Of all the eucalyptus trees, processed into paper, only 16% were grown on purpose. 9% is an old forest, and 75% - the third generation of the forest, and more. These trees grow more than a decade, to eventually be recycled for a small amount of paper. Recently, however, observed a positive trend of increasing cultivation of rainbow eucalyptus trees and reforestation

This tree is the birthplace of the Philippine island of Mindanao. Natural rainbow eucalyptus plantations can meet in the Philippines, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. However, the tree was also cultivated in South America, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, China and some other countries

In 1929, the seeds of eucalyptus were taken to Hawaii and then to Florida. After some time they have spread around the world: South America, Sri Lanka, China, Malaysia and other countries.
