The manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium) is a shrub or small tree native to New Zealand and southeastern Australia. It is an evergreen plant that can grow up to 15 meters tall, but is typically around 2-5 meters tall. The leaves are small, narrow, and pointy, and the flowers are white or pink. The manuka tree is a prolific bloomer, and its flowers can be found all year round.
The manuka tree is known for its medicinal properties. The leaves and bark of the plant contain essential oils that have antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Manuka honey, which is made from the nectar of the manuka tree, is also known for its medicinal properties. Manuka honey is used to treat a variety of conditions, including wound healing, burns, and stomach ulcers.
The manuka tree is also a valuable timber tree. The wood is strong and durable, and it is used to make furniture, flooring, and other wood products.
