Red Car Property: Dead Eucalyptus Week

Photo: Diane Edwardson, May 15, 2015.  It looks like the large Eucalyptus across the street from the last 2 houses on Adelbert, has finally ended its long slow death spiral.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)

Since 2012 more than a dozen big Eucalyptus trees died on the north end of the Red Car Property.  Most were removed last year.  However, this one should have been removed too. 

It looks like there are a couple of large dead Eucalyptus on the downslope side of the Red Car Property on the rear property line of homes on Riverside Drive.
