Tuart (Eucalyptus gomphocephala) is a magnificent woodland tree endemic to the Swan Coastal Plain of Western Australia and is one of the few eucalypts that is adapted to calcareous soil profiles (Eldridge et al. 1994). Prior to European settlement there were more than 111,609 ha of tuart woodlands (Hopkins et al. 1996) but this has been reduced to 30,317 ha (W.A. Government 2003). In Yalgorup National Park and private property ca. 100 km south of Perth, tuart is undergoing a severe decline or ‘dieback’.
