Poplar Gum woodland plants
 
Poplar Gum
Eucalyptus platyphylla
 
These are large eucalypts with an open, sprawling habit and are easily recognised by the smooth, white trunk and the broadly oval leaves. They are found in open forests in Eastern Queensland from about Rockhampton northwards.
Poplar gums are generally found scattered among other Eucalypts and it is unusual to find a woodland where they are dominant. Poplar Gum woodland has been extensively cleared in coastal areas and only about 10% remains in the region.
