Eucalypt regrowth

Hard to kill Australian natives, like this Eucalyptus blakelyi, also known as the Blakely's Red Gum.

You find many in the Riverina that were ring-barked around 150 years ago, yet have regrown since.

In some ways I think the endurance of eucalypts in this way is a good metaphor for the resurgence of indigenous Australians.
