Plant list - Trees

Quite what is a tree is sometimes hard to define. Some of the species listed here could also be called tall shrubs, but most are undeniably trees. Tasmania is home to the tallest flowering plant, the magnificent Eucalyptus regnans or Swamp Gum. The tallest Swamp Gum known, the Century Tree, is located in the Southern Forests south of Hobart, and is 99.6 m high. The only taller species, the American Redwood, is a pine, and therefore doesn't have flowers.
