There is a flora reserve in Ruffy that was set aside in the 1890’s for the preservation of Snow Gums (Eucalyptus pauciflora). Snow Gums must have been considered uncommon in the Strathbogies at that time and, indeed, they still are. Today, I can only find two specimens surviving in the reserve, which is at the bottom of Noyes Lane, near Ruffy Recreation Reserve. They are rather thin, lanky trees showing evidence of heavy Koala grazing.

Where else in these Ranges do Snow Gums Occur? (Janet H)
