Lophostemon confertus (syn. Tristania conferta), is a tree native to Australia, though it is cultivated in the United States and elsewhere. Common names include brush box, Queensland box, Brisbane Box, pink box, box scrub, and vinegartree. Its natural range in Australia is north-east New South Wales and coastal Queensland but it is commonly found as a street tree in Sydney and Melbourne. It is considered suitable as a street tree, due to its disease and pest resilience, high tolerance for smog, drought and poor drainage, as well as needing only moderate-to-light upkeep. It often requires lopping to accommodate overhead power lines but survives pruning quite well.
