Q.Eucalyptus Tree Trunk

Anonymous added on May 5, 2014 | Answered

I bought a eucalyptus tree and it seems to not stand upright by itself. I have it attached to a stake loosely right now. Will the tree establish a trunk anytime soon? It seems very unstable. Its thickness is of a rose branch. Do I need to do anything to help it?

Sounds like you've done all you can right now. Once the stem gets stronger and thicker, you should be able to remove the stake and the tree should be straightened. Just make sure that whatever you've tied it with does not cut into the stem as it grows.
