While this may appear to be a cool tree with camouflaged bark, it actually continue to morph in all the colours of a rainbow. If you enjoy the forest, then you probably like the 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-coloured trunk and branches, the Rainbow Eucalyptus is "one of the most amazingly colourful species of tree," noted the photographer.
Roberto Verso
 
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. The landscaping article
Under the rainbow explained, "As the newly exposed bark slowly ages, it changes from bright green to dark green then bluish to purple and then pink-orange. Finally, the color becomes a brownish maroon right before exfoliation occurs. Since this process is happening in different zones of the trunk and in different stages, simultaneously, the colours are varied and almost constantly changing. As a result, the tree will never have the same color pattern twice, making it like a work of living art."
 
This uniquely-shaped tree was in a small eucalyptus grove along the way to Hana, Maui. The eucalyptus deglupta is called by many names, most commonly the rainbow eucalyptus.
Since it is believed to have originated in the Philippines, specifically the island of Mindanao, it is also called Mindanao gum, or rainbow gum.
 
"One of the best places to see the rainbow eucalyptus trees is on the road to the windward town of Hanna," reported the examiner. " This famous, curvy road with over 600 tight Turns and 53 one lane bridges hosts several groups of the beautiful, colourful trees."

a height of 197 – 246 feet (60 – 75 meters) with a diameter up to 7.9 feet (240 centimeters ) wide.

Sunshine and rainbows. This is a sun loving tree that "does not grows naturally in areas with a pronounced dry season but occurs in those where the annual rainfall is very high
and the monthly rainfall usually exceeds150mm. Because of this, it is widely planted throughout the wet tropics. E. deglupta does not withstand prolonged flooding, is highly
sensitive to fires and although it may grow in cool environments, it does not tolerate frost. By Lydia Mann

The same tree can appear different, morphing as it sheds patches of showy bark at different times throughout the year. When wet, such as after rain, the bark takes on a shiny colouring.
 
Grown around the world in tree plantations, the rainbow eucalyptus is mainly used for pulpwood in making white paper. It is the dominant species used for pulpwood plantations
in the Philippines, but coffee farmers in Costa Rica are using the shade of this tree to effectively grow their coffee. Also the wood from the tree can be used to make furniture
and sometimes for construction. In Hawaii, the rainbow eucalyptus is also used for making boats.
 
Looking up at the cool bark, Bob Beck, a expert at Zoo Miami stated, "This tree is the main source of food for the Koala, and is where it makes its home, usually just going to the
Ground to get to the next tree where there might be a mate."
