Q.Bending of Eucalyptus trees

Zone Karachi, Sind, Pakistan | Shay added on November 10, 2016 | Answered

I have few thousand one year old Eucalyptus trees. Some of them have started to bend/bow down from the top. The main trunk is almost U-shaped from the top. What could be the reason? Should I be worried?

I am not sure what could cause this. One possibility is that if they are either staked or fertilized with too much nitrogen, they could be inhibited from developing strong trunks. With top-heavy eucalyptus trees, it can be necessary to cut the main trunk below the bowed portion. This will promote stronger, branched growth.
