Q.Sticky Ground Under Eucalyptus Tree

Zone Sydney | Anonymous added on November 5, 2023 | Answered

Hi Team, I have a large mature eucaluptus tree in my garden that, since spring started a few months ago is causing the ground underneath to be sticky. Leaves and gum nuts also fall although not in large quantities unless the cockatoos are in there biting off branches. Is this a problem?

The litter that falls should be swept up because the bark is considered flammable. If it's sticky, check for insects such as red gum lurp psyllid.
