Species List Botanical: Australian Native Trees & Shrubs

A botanical species list of 450 native trees and shrubs found on Australia's east coast with links to photos and descriptions. In alphabetical order from A - Z (below). Also listed are 26 introduced, invasive species spreading in Australian forests. Names in the botanical index shown in yellow font are links to web pages which show the relevant pictures of the full tree, leaf characteristics, bark, flower and / or fruit samples. Detailed descriptions of every tree species are given to assist in identification of native trees and shrubs found on Australia's east coast. The tree identification web pages show; bark samples, explain growth habits, give distribution ranges and provide information on special leaf features, such as domatia, stipules and scent for identification. See the Leaf Characteristics Page for comprehensive information on how to identify native tree species by leaf features. Species belonging to the following genera are listed in groups on our web pages: Australian Fig trees (Ficus spp.), Australian Eucalypts (Eucalyptus spp.), Grevilleas (Grevillea spp.) and Lilly Pillies/Satinashes (Syzygium spp.). We aim to increase the awareness to the high conservation values of Australian old growth forests.
