Species List for Australian Tree Identification Images and Descriptions

Species list ordered by common names of 321 Australian native trees and shrubs with links to photos and descriptions. In alphabetical order from A - Z (below). All tree species shown in yellow font are links to web pages which provide the relevant images for the full tree, leaf characteristics, bark, flower and / or fruit samples. Also listed are 18 introduced, invasive (noxious) species spreading in Australian forests. Detailed descriptions of every tree species are given to assist in identification of native trees and shrubs found on Australia's east coast. See the Leaf Characteristics Page for comprehensive information on how to identify native tree species by leaf features. Our web pages; show bark samples, explain growth habits, give distribution ranges, display flower and fruit pictures and give advise on special leaf features like domatia, stipules and scent for identification. Following genera are listed in groups on our web pages: Australian Fig trees (Ficus spp.), Australian Eucalypts (Eucalyptus spp.), Grevilleas (Grevillea spp.) and Syzygium species (Lilly Pillies). We hope to raise the awareness to the high conservation value of remaining old growth forests in Australia with these web pages.
