Giant Eucalyptus Trees: National Geographic magazine
Two giant eucalyptus wrapped with prayer flags adjacent to a logging clear-cut in old growth forest in the Upper Florentine Valley. In 2013 this area received protection when it was included in Tasmania's expanded World Heritage wilderness. In 2014 the Australian government led by Prime Minister Tony Abbot tried to have the area de-listed to open it back up to logging. This request to UNESCO was denied. In 2015 Tony Abbot was overthrown by his own party and replaced as Prime Minister.
