Re: Eucalyptus Trees for West Central Louisiana
before you do either species selection or planting you may want to consider what you are going to sell the harvest as---firewood or lumber? is there a market and processing faciilites for eucalyptus lumber in your area---if not there may be little use in planting what cant be sold. you might consider camuldulensis (river red gum), robusta, saligna, and deanei none of these will be happy if the temps go below 20f. leucoxylon and polyanthemos might be somewhat hardier and useful for firewood. seed of these and many others are availible from www.australiaplants.com you might want to check with you county or state extension or foresty service for other and potentially better choices. good luck.
