Eucalyptus trees are interesting beasties; shedding leaves, brittle branches and these cute little flower seed pods all over the garage roof…

  1. Their smell is what I prefer. And their growth is outstanding. We lost two, or so we thought, a few years ago after a snowstorm. We cut them and they grew three times as big. Ours, however, don’t turn as dry and golden looking as yours. They are similar in appeareance, though. Perhaps just a climate issue.

      We lost a lot of foliage in the summer hot winds and also in the winter storms – once fallen, it soon dries off to this lovely colour.

      I took 10m off ours 2 years ago, and just a month ago chopped back 8m of regrowth!

    And i love their smooth, slender look as well. Not to forget the fresh smell every time you cross an Eucalyptus tree…

  3. And smell very nice. My sensory memory of my first visit to California is the smell of Eucalyptus which grows everywhere. It was my first contact with that tree so the smell stayed with me. (Suzanne)
