The red river gum is the life support system of the Murray.
It mills dozens of hardwoods, including exotics like Carolina cherry, black acacia, melaleuca, red river gum, carob, sycamore, silver maple and holly oak; and softwoods, which include Fern pine, Canary Island pine, Italian stone pine, and cedar.
Of course, you probably would not want to plant some of them, either because they grow too tall or they are susceptible to the lerp psyllid, an insect that has ravaged the red river gum tree (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) throughout Southern California.
