Eucalyptus grandis (four year in ground anniversary)
Posted by Walt - Lake Placid, Florida on 7/21/2015, 5:57 pm
Just chiming in to say my Euc. grandis that I planted four years ago this month is still growing, albeit maybe a little more slowly. It is now the tallest tree on my property. I also have two more planted that are one year behind this one in growth.
The tree has big lateral roots that make mowing over them hard. In fact, I can't mow over them without my mower blades striking them. Small lower limbs break easily and/or just die off and fall. Also, wild muscadine grape vines started growing up this tree and I had to severe them, but dead vines still remain on parts of the tree.
I took the current photo late this evening, so it's a little dark.
