alpine ash, mountain oak, Eucalyptus delegatensis(noun)
tall timber tree with hard heavy pinkish or light brown wood
Eucalyptus delegatensis, commonly known as Alpine Ash or Gum-topped stringybark or White-top, is a sub-alpine or temperate tree of southeastern Australia. A straight, grey-trunked tree, it reaches heights of over 90 metres in suitable conditions. The tallest currently known specimen is located in Tasmania and is 87.9 m tall. This height is sufficient to make it the 10th tallest species of tree. Among flowering plants, only the Eucalyptus regnans grows taller, the Tasmanian Blue Gum, the Manna Gum, the Messmate Stringybark, the Shorea faguetiana, the Koompassia excelsa and possibly also the Eucalyptus nitens and the Allantospermum borneense about the same. Alpine Ash is a member of the Stringybark group of Eucalypts. The bark is thick and fibrous at the base, smooth on the smaller branches. In the Tasmanian subspecies, the entire trunk and the larger limbs are thick-barked; in the mainland subspecies the rough bark extends only part-way up the trunk - a half bark. The nominate subspecies is native to cool, rocky, rugged well drained soils of mountainous areas between 850m and 1500 m in Victoria and New South Wales; E. d. tasmaniensis is found in most higher-altitude parts of Tasmania apart from the south-west.
