Living Rainbow: Rainbow Eucalyptus, Most Beautiful Tree Bark on Earth [36 PICS] While this may appear to be a cool tree with camouflaged bark, it actually continues to morph in all the colors of a rainbow. If you enjoy the forest, then you probably like trees. This isn’t Somewhere Over the Rainbow, but somewhere under the rainbow, so if you don’t live in a warm, moist climate, then you might not have ever come across the most beautiful bark of any tree on Earth. With bright and uniquely-colored trunk and branches, the Rainbow Eucalyptus is “one of the most amazingly colorful species of tree,” noted the photographer. Photo #1 by Roberto Verzo The bark is smooth, but flaky as it sheds layers on various places at different times along the tree, revealing new colors and keeping up the appearance of a rainbow.

This uniquely-shaped tree was in a small eucalyptus grove along the way to Hana, Maui. “One of the best places to see the Rainbow Eucalyptus trees is on the road to the windward town of Hana,” reported the Examiner. Sunshine and rainbows.
