I just went to pick tomatoes and found a large moth, with mottled top wings, but flashing a red underwing like a red admiral. I think it is  a red underwing moth Catocala nupta.  very excited. Photos to follow.

Buying a new shredder

I have an old Alko, rotary blade type, better for small stuff like perennials,and a Bosch screw type, better for straight stiff stuff like branches and brambles. The Bosch is no good for fine stuff.  They both block at times, I try and run dry stuff through before putting away to clean it out.

 On a bad day, with wet fine stuff, I strew it on the lawn and mow it up with a rotary mower.

Not had an apple for years!

Does it flower. If it doesn't flower, it needs pruning to shape and the area around it clearing. If it flowers but no fruit, it may need a pollinator.

Eucalyptus? ID please

As nutcutlet says, it could be one of many species. The bark looks like my  E. perriniana, it is splitting like that at the moment, leaving a red bark underneath.
