How Fast Can A Big Eucalyptus Tree Die?

Dead Eucalyptus are a serious  fire hazard.  They are highly combustible.  Don't put our neighborhood at risk hoping for a miracle that will bring your tree back to life.

It's been Dead Eucalyptus Week here on the blog, but for the past for the past 3 years, we've documented dead trees in the Red Car Property neighborhood.  Click here for all our dead tree posts.
