Description: Solid along the backwater banks of the river. Hard to believe that some insane people worry about cutting down these trees because they are used by Fish Eagles: there are so many alien trees in the landscape, this is not likely to even be a remote issue.

Description: The major alien invasive in the system in terms of size.
And a bone of contention as it houses Fish Eagle nests. One day the bird people will ask: what did the Fish Eagles use before the gums invaded. Answer, lesser riverine trees. Fish Eagle nests is not a good reason to not get rid of this huge problem!
