fire resistance of some Australian trees

eucalyptus bark is nearly as fire-resistant      web

doc-titleBark thickness determines fire resistance of selected tree species from fire-prone tropical savanna in north Australia
authorLawe MJ, Richards AE
publicationPlant Ecology
quoteWe investigated the fire resistance conferred by bark of seven common tree species in north Australian tropical savannas. ... Although species did not differ significantly in their bark thermal conductance (k), the thinner barked eucalypts nevertheless achieved similar or only slightly lower levels of fire resistance than much thicker barked non-eucalypts.
