There are three main species of paperbark tree, freshwater paperbark (Melaleuca rhaphiophylla), mondong or stout paperbark (M. preissiana) and saltwater paperbark (M.cuticularis). They are all locally common across Western Australia's Swan Coastal Plain with the modong and freshwater species providing fine stands close to freshwater swamps, lakes and wetland depressions and the saltwater type preferring to dominate closer to saline rivers and estuaries. In this print the artist depicts the freshwater species found in Yellagonga Regional Park.
