Wandoo Forest 2020 I have selected Eucalyptus Wandoo because of its stunning silky white bark, red leaking sap and gnarly form; it also has an Aboriginal name Wandoo. In Noongar Wandoo means tree. The Wandoo tree has a very hard wood and was used to make wooden nails for boat building and floor boards. The Wandoo Forest at Mt Observation about 15 Kilometres west of York in WA.
