Brisbane Box, Lophostemon confertus
Location: Taradale Cemetery
A well-shaped specimen stands in a prominent position away from other trees in Taradale Cemetery. This is still a young tree, planted in the early 1970s. In its native territories of Queensland and New South Wales, it grows over 30 metres tall.
Although it has seed capsules resembling those common among Eucalyptus species, the Brisbane or Bush Box is a close relative of New Zealand's Pohutakawa (Metrosideros excelsa).
