loams. The leaves are rounded, from 2-5cm long.

EUCALYPTS WITH TRUE LEAVES
SMALL PALE GREEN TREE
Leaves narrow, 8-15 cm long. Fruit egg shaped. One shiny
black seed - WILGA (geijera pareviflora). Wilga is a very
palatable tree and when growing is grazed areas is neatly trimmed
underneath at sheep head height. It grows well on deep sandy soils.
STOUT STEMMED TREE
Large dark green leaves. Seeds up to 8 cm long - KURRAJONG
(brachychiton populneum). This tree will grow in a large range
of areas from good well drained agricultural soil to the exposed edges
of cliffs. The foliage is highly palatable although the seeds are
poisonous. Despite severe lopping and pruning by graziers during
periods of drought, Kurrajongs recover well and thrive. They are often
found where there is a high level of calcium in the soil for example,
on limestone outcrops.
