I have a silver dollar eucalyptus tree that looks dead. I planted the tree in fall and now it's spring. The whole tree is brown with no leaves and the branches are easy to break off. Can this tree be saved, or is it already dead?
This winter was particularly cold for most of the U.S. It is possible that it simply got too cold. Another possibility is that if the area it is growing is too wet, it cannot tolerate that over the winter. Here is an article to help you determine if it is dead or just on a slow start: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
A storm tipped over a 30' eucalyptus tree. Any suggestions on saving the tree or replanting it and tying it up?
If the roots are still intact, by all means, try to right and replant your tree. Thirty feet is a good sized tree and it will need staking until it has re-established itself. That may take a couple of years. Good Luck!
I planted a 2-year-old eucalyptus tree recently, and the leaves are turning brown. I live in Mississippi where it is very hot in the summer, but I water it regularly. I really want to save this tree.
If you feel it is getting enough water, then it is likely a fungus that is attacking the tree. Treat the tree with a fungicide. I personally like neem oil as it will treat for both fungus and pests.
Our Eucalyptus tree planted at 5 foot tall last year did take a bit of a battering when we had all the frosts and snow at the beginging of the year. Most of the leaves on one side of it have dried up and are dropping off. Do we need to do anything with it? I have fed it with Miracle Gro but as yet it still looks very sad. The branches that the leaves have fallen off of are still supple and not dry.
If the branches are still alive, it will recover. There is not much that can be done other than what you have already done to get it to recover faster. It just needs time.
If a eucalyptus tree appears to have excessive bark peeling, does that denote a problem? If so, what can be done to resolve the issue? Regards, Bill Sinclair
Most likely not. Many eucalyptus trees have bark that peels naturally and the peeling will get more pronounced as the tree ages. It is considered to be an aesthetically appealing feature of many varieties of mature eucalyptus.
Will my tree survive after replanting? All leaves have turned brown and have fallen off. Is it dead or do I leave it till next year?
If the stems are still alive, it can come back. This article will help you determine if it is still alive:
My daughter has a silver dollar eucalyptus. I would like to get a cutting and try to grow one, but I don't know the best way to get one started. Do you have any suggestions?
