Today after a light rain I was walking about my property and decided to snap a pic of my euc.
As you know, I just planted it this past July. However, this tree has added at least four feet of height (and some girth) in only two months. I've very impressed with such fast growth and look forward to continue tracking its growth until July of 2012, just to see what kind of growth it puts out in a year's time.
Since I first started this thread concerning the I.D. of my euc, I've since been told it's E. grandis. I'm totally ignorant when it comes to eucs, so from my current photo, would everyone say my tree is in fact E. grandis?
One thing I can say is, it's much faster growing than my E. degulpta, which was frozen down to the roots this past winter (coldest low I've every recorded in my almost 14 years living here). Hopefully, I won't see lows like that this winter. But to the point, my E. degulpta has only regrown to a bushy 4+ feet high. It looks great (foliage) of what there is of it.
In any event, I wanted to give all an update on my euc. I will update again in two months (November 25th), which should still be many weeks before any potential frost here.
While my euc in photo below may not look it, it's about 9 feet high at its highest point.
