Our eucalyptus tree is about 15 m tall and starting to block sun on the neighbor's garden. Is there any way to cut back a significant amount of the tree from which it will recover?

My friend has a well established Eucalyptus tree. She has seen no seed pods. Can this beautiful tree be cultivated from a cutting? If so, what is the procedure for rooting? When is the best time of the year to take the cutting, and how long should the cutting be?
Eucalyptus cuttings do not usually root that easily; therefore, this method of propagation rarely works. However, the tree does propagate easily from seeds, which can be started directly in the ground or in a container and later transplanted.
Our eucalyptus tree seemed to have survived the winter but now seems to be dying. The leaves have turned brown and are very dry and crispy. Is this an infection, has it been poisoned, or has the unusually hot weather early this year caused it?
The leaves may be turning brown due to a delayed reaction to cold damage. but it might also be a fungus. If the stems are still alive, the leaves will regrow without help if it is cold damage. In case it is a fungus, I would treat the tree with a fungicide. I personally like neem oil, as it kills any fungus and any pests that may be attacking the tree.
Are invasive roots a problem with this tree? Also, is dripping sap a problem? I've heard that other plants may not be able to grow underneath.
Eucalyptus roots tend to be shallow compared to other trees, going down about 6-10 feet normally. They are very water hungry and if they cannot find a way to get enough water in the soil, may invade pipes. You can try giving it extra waterings, to keep it from seeking out water from the pipes or redirect runoff water to the tree for the same effect.
Sap is not typically a big problem with these trees unless there is a pest problem or disease present.
I bought a eucalyptus tree last summer and put it in a large pot. The tree seemed fine all over the winter and did not seem bothered by the snow. Since the weather has gotten warmer, the tree appears to be dying. The leaves have all dried out and is looking very sorry for itself. It does seem to have grown taller since we had it, however.
It may be overwatered. Cut back on watering and check the roots for root rot. This article will help:
On my Eucalyptus tree, most of the leaves have gone brown and brittle. The tree was pruned last summer. What's the best course of action, as new leaves are starting to sprout from main trunk and larger branches. Thank you. Rob H
You can trim away any dead, brittle branches as these are dead. Other than that, anything that is still alive will regrow its leaves. Most of country experienced unusually cold weather this winter. If this is the case where you live, this was the likely cause for the leaf dieback on the tree.
My silver dollar eucalyptus tree, 4' tall, has brown spots on the leaves and they are falling off. Is it fungus? What to do? I'm in the north Phoenix, AZ area, very dry humidity this spring.
Tomato plants' leaves are turning brown, drying out, curling up. I spray water over the plant every other day, water every other day. It is potted, gets morning sun, about 4-6 hrs daily. I sprayed with Palmolive liquid/water.
It does sound like the eucalyptus has a fungus. Treat with a fungicide.
The tomato is underwatered. In containers, they should be watered once a day in temps under 85 degrees F and twice a day in temps over 85 degrees F.
