Karri Tree

You can’t go to Pemberton and not take a photo of a Karri Tree. These are the third largest trees in the world behind the Californian redwood and the Victorian Mountain Ash (according to the tour guide). The oldest ones are around 300 years old. You can tell the oldest ones (apart from size) because the crowns have collapsed. Many of these old trees have this cavity in the base – good habitat for something! Around Pemberton these old trees seem to have this bright green moss around the base. In this shot the fern gives some appreciation of the size – this tree would have been over 2m in diameter.
