Description: 
A grove 30 years old of Eucalyptus diversicula [i.e., diversicolor] or the Karri Gum. The photo shows a good stand with young trees starting up from below (Raven, Rust, Zohn). We then drove to Tokai, the forest station where trees from all over the world are tried out.... Here they have tried many trees and an unusually large number grow well. The eucalyptus forms great forests but is being discontinued because of the equally adapted and better pine. [Shantz travel journal, Aug. 18, 1919]
