Eucalyptus Tree Leaves Are Falling Off

Eucalyptus tree leaves are falling off and bark is turning dark brown. I live in Peoria, Az. and the tree is 2 years old and 7 ft tall. Is it getting watered too much?

ANSWERS

This sounds like canker a fungus that attacks eucalyptus. Please see this article for more information.

White, Sticky Crystals on Eucalyptus Tree Leaves

I have a white, sticky crystal on the eucalyptus trees around my place. The leaves are starting to fall off more than I have ever noticed before. Is there a treatment for this problem? I am in the foothills of the San Joaquin Valley in California.

ANSWERS

This sounds like a fungal infection. Contact your local extension office (found under gov't in the phone book) for more information on how to control this problem. You may also find this article helpful:

Eucalyptus Trees/Leaves Shedding

We have recently moved into a house with two Eucalyptus trees in the garden, well established and about 20-30 feet tall. However, they are shedding leaves all the time and destroying the look of the newly landscaped appearance of our garden. We have a clay type soil. Is this normal, and will they finally stop shedding their leaves in a particular month? Please advise as I really cannot see how we are going to cope with clearing this up all our lives as we get older.

Tree Pruning

I have a fairly large silver dollar gum that is too large for the site. I want to reduce its height by half but if I do, I will cut away most of the leaves. Will this variety produce new leaves, and if so, when should I do the severe pruning?

Eucalyptus Tree Flowers

I have lived in my house for 4 years. I have never seen any flowers on the Eucalypus tree. Each year I have had it pruned in the spring. Is this why I have no flowers, and what should they look like?

Generally, indoor eucalyptus rarely flower. To enjoy flowers, you'll have to grow the tree outdoors in the landscape.

Wound Dressing for Eucalyptus

I have a six month eucalyptus tree, and I wanted to know if I can trim it before I transplant it to another part of the yard. I see that I may need a wound dressing. What is it and where can I get this?

ANSWERS

Applying wound dressing is only needed for larger areas to prevent infection and even this isn't always necessary as trees often 'heal' themselves. A light coating of a wound dressing might also be used for cosmetic purposes. However, you may use wound dressings if you wish. Look for a breathable wound dressing for pruned, grafted or damaged plants found in garden, landscaping, or hardware stores. For better healing results, cut the branches flush with the tree.

Stains on Pool Deck From Tree

Our pool deck suddenly developed rust color stains. We can remove the stains with a scrub brush and a mild cleaner, but the stains always return within a day or two. We have a Eucalyptus tree close by. Could this be the cause? We never see any foreign matter from the tree on the deck (no leaves, sap, etc). But the stains are definitely there. It’s a mystery!

ANSWERS

The tree may have a pest problem and the pests are secreting honeydew. It would be almost the consistency of water. Honeydew, though, attracts fungus, so what you may be seeing is a fungus growing on the deck because of honeydew. Check the tree carefully for pests. They will most likely be under leaves or in the crotch area of branches.
