Q.Eucalyptus Trees

Anonymous added on April 10, 2014 | Answered

I planted a eucalyptus tree last Sept. in our backyard. It’s a dollar tree. Now it looks dead. What should I do? It’s pretty tall but the bark and leaves are brown. We did have a frost but it didn’t last long. I live at 3,500 ft. but our weather is mild. Should I feed it more water and fertilizer?

These trees can survive cold spells for short periods with only leaf loss as damage. This article will help you determine if the plant is still alive: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
