perhaps there was, though gauging the age of eucalypts is very difficult, and also controversial, which was why I was interested. I wouldn't argue with that assessment. This site only allows for "planted" whereas of course these forest trees are all self-sown. Try this website for some more large trees in Australia including this one shown which holds the record for E. saligna.http://www.nationalregisterofbigtrees.com.au/listing_view.php?listing_id=877
Yes, I know that website and it is very helpful. If you discover anything more about big/old E. globulus in Spain or Portugal I am always interested.
Best wishes for your tree-spotting work.
I visited the tree and Barrington Tops NP in 2008. Maybe there was a signpost telling the age, I can't remember. Or I have simply guessed it taking account of the longevity and growth rate of the species. If you have better knowledge about the age, please change the it.
I don't know how old are the oldest eucalypts in Spain/Portugal. The tallest reliable measured eucalypt in Portugal was 72m in 2010. See:
We don't have newer data.
