These two trees differ from all other species of Eucalyptus in that their bark, on the lower portions of the tree where it is persistent, is composed of numerous thin flakes almost like sheets of mica. These plates are traversed by fibres and on the older parts of the trunk, When the flakes have decayed, the fibres are left like a dense netting giving rise to the appearance from which the Woollybutt gets its name.
