Eucalyptus Tree

Anonymous added on July 3, 2015 | Answered

My eucalyptus tree is mature, approx 70 feet tall. The leaves are mostly brown and a leafy growth has appeared from the bottom up. Now nearly covering the first 20 feet. Never saw this before. What is happening and has the severe weather caused this?
