We receive many calls about Eucalyptus trees for good reason, as they are prone to crack and break frequently. There are dozens of different species of Eucalyptus trees that grow on the west coast and that are prevalent in San Diego. Eucalyptus trees are very fast growing and draw a lot of water out of the root systems up into the canopy. With already heavily weighted branches, Eucalyptus trees do tend to crack and break. Therefore, it’s essential to have your Eucalyptus trees regularly inspected by a Certified Arborist and have them pruned every couple of years.

Pruning and Trimming

Regular Tree Pruning is important because more people are hit by falling Eucalyptus branches than by any other type of trees. These trees are also extremely prone to being blown over by high windstorms. In fact, strong winds and unhealthy Eucalyptus trees cause a great deal of structural damage to homes each year in California. Professional pruning can be considered both preventative care and routine maintenance and is one of the most important things you can do for your trees.

Tree Health

Most problems with Eucalyptus trees occur when the trees are stressed. This can be the result of disease or insects. There are several fungi that can cause Eucalyptus tree diseases including Root Rot that first shows itself through discolored leaves and dark brown wood directly under the bark.

These are all good reasons why it’s important to have your Eucalyptus trees inspected regularly by an expert. With regular pruning and inspection by a Certified Arborist, you will be helping to increase the strength of your Eucalyptus trees to ensure their long-term health.
