The Miena Cider Gums, or weeping trees, are rare and special. They evolved to be the most frost-tolerant of all eucalypts, but since the early 1990s, they have faced a gradual decline, leading to their current listing as an endangered species. 
These trees are only found within a 20km radius of Miena, a small village in Tasmania's Central Highlands.
