Most Dangerous Tree in QLD- The Stinging Tree 😯
The Stinging Tree, or the Dendrocnide Moroides as it’s known to the Professionals, has up to 15000 hollow silica – tipped hairs (on each side of the left and stems) that when they make contact with the human skin, the hairs enter the skin causing a painful stinging sensation which can last for days or even months, and the sting area becomes covered with small red spots joining together to form a red, swollen mass.
It has been known to kill dogs, horses and even a human. The best way to ease the pain is by waxing the area!
