Q.Eucalyptus Tree Leaves Dead and Falling

treborbren added on May 14, 2011 | Answered

On my Eucalyptus tree, most of the leaves have gone brown and brittle. The tree was pruned last summer. What’s the best course of action, as new leaves are starting to sprout from main trunk and larger branches. Thank you.

You can trim away any dead, brittle branches as these are dead. Other than that, anything that is still alive will regrow its leaves. Most of country experienced unusually cold weather this winter. If this is the case where you live, this was the likely cause for the leaf dieback on the tree.
