Some native plants of Mt Murray

Here are two of the most typical "cool temperate rainforest" plants which grow on Mt Murray.
I have written previously about the flower details of the Sassafras
and also about the occasional heavy flowering of these trees.
Heavy flowering then leads to prolific seed distribution by the Sassafras trees.

Older leaves of Sassafras go very leathery. Toothed margins.

As per the previous links, kindly check out my earlier posts about the flowers and seeds of the Sassafras trees of Robertson.
