Early settlers took advantage of the tree leaves for; colds, coughs, flu, as well as the leaves were burnt in fires to repel insects. Blue Gum timber was used for poles and railway sleepers. In the 1860’s a Melbourne Archbishop took Blue Gum seed to Rome, where the fast growing trees were grown to drain swampy regions and as a result serious malaria problems were removed.
Present Day Usage
Blue Gum became the floral emblem of Tasmania in 1962.
The Blue Gum tree is a fast growing Eucalypt. In the 1990’s financial markets in Australia became attracted to management investment schemes for Blue Gum. Millions of dollars and tens of millions of trees were planted for the purpose of a renewable paper and pulp supply. The schemes failed as timber from old growth forests were too cheap to source in comparison to the plantations. The plantations can be seen in Victoria, extensively in south west Western Australia, Tasmania and on Kangaroo Island in South Australia.
It has been also planted in large plantations overseas. Asia is now planting these trees to purify the air.
