Red Gums Under Attack
Have you noticed that your red gums (marri or Corymbia calophylla) are looking sick and have large black coloured scars with the bark hanging off?
When you walk around Roleystone you will see them along the road. The disease is caused by a fungus which attacks the stems. The trees go into decline, the scar spreads and could go completely around the stem, thereby girdling and finally killing it.
