There is a species called Eucalyptus deglupta which may fit your photos. It is distinctly tropical and will grow in South Florida but is a rainforest tree and requires a lot of water to become fully mature as a large tree. Your photos show an exfoliating bark and the beginnings of buttressing which would fit but other examples of this species have much more dramatic colouring of the bark; perhaps it is a trick of the light and photo that do not reveal the true rainbow effect.
