Re: Eucalyptus Trees for West Central Louisiana
depends to a certain extent on species and growing conditions but many tall growing eucs start to loose their lower branches readily around the third or forth year if planted at a 12' spacing or so for short rotation. my understanding is that early euc timber growers (19th century) lost their shirts because eucs like e. globulus for example may warp badly after sawing under traditional drying methods so make sure that your mill knows what its doing or does research on appropriate techniques BEFORE you harvest. good luck.
