One big tree in an urban setting.
Doesn't look like no yahoos have carved on it none neither.

Wc-The previous largest Blue Gum I've found was half the girth of this monster.
Deep roots...It's an upscale community+ it's a block from the local P.D. headquarters!

I read somewhere the tallest tree in the world was a blue gum in Australia that was 400 feet tall, but other people have disputed that so don't know if its true. There is a Euch about 200 feet away from my house that is so tall it puts my whole back yard in shade during most of the year.
