Jarrett, are the palms native to that area? or intruders? I love the photos of the old tree that fell. One is almost like a body being drug through the forest.

The palms are native to the area, but these dense groves can spread and contract relatively quickly. Most of the old trees are believed to predate the palm forest, since such trees could never get going as saplings in the face of the deep shade and heavy litter of dead fronds.

A very interesting post. Those wild palms are amazing!

Hmmm, surely that "old eucalypt" is a strangler fig.

Noted and corrected, thanks!
