Eucalyptus Trees and Cold Weather

Anonymous added on April 18, 2011 | Answered

We live in northern Germany and have just come out of the severest winter on record, with continual snow from mid-December to the second week in March. I now find that two large (4 metres) eucalyptus trees seem to have expired. At least all the leaves have withered and several of the more slender branches have died. Short of cutting back some of the main thicker branches to see if there is any life, what else could I do? Is it possible the trees have died?

The unusually cold temps have done a number on many plants this year. Yes, it is possible that they may have died, but it is not for certain. Older 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:
