    The snow gums have lower resistance to fire than the typical eucalypts, so there must be a different mechanism for cold resistance than fire resistance. After fire the limbs of the alpine and sub-alpine gums usually die, and the tree reshoots from the roots. For the other eucalypts, a tree can be totally charred, all leaves burnt to skelletons, and then a few weeks later be covered in green shoots from the trunk.

    Eucalyptus – A phenomenal tree of any species. I grew up in the Andean Cordillera slopes and had a whole forest of eucalyptus to use as a playground. Unfortunately, the smell of the leaves is very pungent and reminscent of cat’s urine. More than once I was told to stay out of the house until I cleaned up before be allowed into the house. It did not deter me from playing in the forest. Beautiful memories of those trees.

    I have a Eucalyptus tree in my front garden, it is about twelve foot tall and very strong but in the past month almost all of the leaves have turned brown and crispy. Can someone please help me, thanks

    Hi all , I too have all the same problems with my tree. It also has a split down its trunk which i thought was a sign of it being too dry, with the leaves being crispy to touch. Would cutting it back do any good?
