Q.Eucalyptus Trees

Anonymous added on May 5, 2014 | Answered

We have 2 eucalyptus trees in the garden. One is quite well established, the other was planted 2 years ago. Both are showing signs of distress and the leaves, normally shiny and healthy, have become a dull grey, are dry and falling off and the tree looks to be dying. We were advised to water the trees and feed Tomorite, which we have done, but the problem appears to be worsening. We feel that they might be suffering as a result of a bitterly cold winter and subsequent dry spring. Please help.

Older trees can normally survive cold spells for short periods with only leaf loss as damage. You may simply need to give the trees some more time, as they may come back without any major problems.
