Paperbark Walpole within the Walpole Nornalup National Park Western Australia. Paperbarks are easy to recognised. The trees’ smooth white papery barks contrast against the deep green backdrop that is the heavily forested Walpole. The region is renowned for its towering karri forest and tingle trees with enormous girths. The paperbarks reside on the margins of these giants, often in the swamps and wetland areas. Their tenacity for life and their reserve are expressed in their roots, much like the lines of face. There are interesting shapes formed by root diversions, overlaps, twists, unexpected angles and knots, an analogy of a life lived.
