The eucalyptus tree is a very tall tree that is found all throughout Australia, though there are species of this tree that can grow just about anywhere. These trees have some beneficial properties that make them useful in the creation of some types of products, such as antiseptics and chewing gum.
There are over 700 Eucalyptus trees, according to cirrus images. This is one of the tallest trees in the world, with some species as tall as 200 meters. The trees have different kinds of bark. Some trees have bark that is made out of long strings and has a spongy texture. Some bark is hard and deeply furrowed. Some bark is broken up into flakes. Some bark is made up of short fibers. Some bark is made up of long strips that look like ribbons. The leaves have a leathery texture and usually hang vertically. They have an oil on them that has a nice fragrance. The flower looks like cups and the fruit that is produced by the tree still has a cup around it, with many seeds contained within it.
According to cirrus images, eucalyptus trees dominate Australia and can be found almost everywhere, with each species of this tree being adapted to a particular set of conditions. The eucalyptus tree is very hardy and has a tendency to grow very fast, according to UC Davis University of California. These trees prefer to have a great deal of sun, since the size of the trees requires that these trees
Many eucalyptus trees have gum that can be used to create chewing gum, according to cirrus images. The oil that is produced on the eucalyptus leaves is a very powerful antiseptic. The oil is somewhat volatile.
According to the UC Davis University of California, the eucalyptus tree is an evergreen, meaning that the leaves on the eucalyptus trees do not fall off the tree when it is cold. Since many of these trees live in very hot climates, the evergreen nature of the tree is rarely experienced.
According to the UC Davis University of California, the pests that have a tendency to infect the eucalyptus tree are the redgum lerp psyllid, the snout beetle, the tortoise beetle, the leaf beetle, the foliage-feeding caterpillars, the gall makers, the glassy-winged sharpshooter, the psyllids, the roundheaded borer and whiteflies. The diseases that can infect the eucalyptus tree are the anthracnose, root rot, canker diseases, crown rots, leaf spot disease, powdery mildew and wood decay.
