                                      picture of the acacia aneura mulga tree

Mulga is a truly amazing plant. Among the acacias, many of which are relatively short-lived, it is a species with a long life. It is also a good fodder tree, its wood is valuable for a variety of purposes and the tree grows in many parts of Australia.

In favourable conditions, young plants will grow at a rate of 1 metre every 10 years until the tree reaches its maximum height of 10 metres. Reduced rainfall or drought conditions will slow down this process or bring it to a temporary halt, which means that a mature tree will usually be more than 100 years old. The counting of growth rings on felled trees has revealed the stunning number of 150-240 rings in stems of only 25 cm in diameter. In their lifetime these trees would have experienced a number of drought years when no growth rings develop and therefore grew older in years than the exact number of growth rings indicate.
