Eucalyptus Tree - should it stay or go?

Posted: 11/10/2013 at 22:28

Gambo....peace of mind assured now. A eucalyptus planted next spring will grow 6' anyway so you won't lose anything but your worry.  It's not another tree biting the dust.    For the record I dug up a coppiced eucalyptus some time ago that had a surprisingly large root system.  I guess it was prob 10 years old.

Well, I hope you make a packet AJK.    I have a feeling you will do very well

Thought about penstemons?    Cuttings root easily from all over the plant and everybody loves penstemons.  I used to sell plants and penstemons were very popular and profitable  Along with osteospermums

Look, eucalyptus grows so fast,  a replacement planted further away from the house would be a sensible decision.  I cut eucalyptus every year down to ground level ...then you get those juvenile, blue leaves.  Of course I am talking about Gunnii which I think is the best for stooling.  

Not best practice to plant any tree too near a building.  Forget for a year or few and, before you know it, you have a problem.  

Gambo said a girth of 3 or 4" so it's getting bit chunky.
