Red gum trees are big evergreen trees with deep roots and a dense crown of leaves that may reach a height of 100-150 feet. The majority of trunks are straight. The rich crimson colour of the wood gives this species its name. The bark peels off in large strips, leaving a white, tan, and grey trunk that is smooth and speckled. Long, thin twigs are reddish and droop downward, with lanceolate or sickle-shaped blue/olive leathery leaves that are two to eight inches (5-20 cm) long and less than two inches (5.5 cm) broad with smooth edges.
