“I am alive among the tall trees.” – unknown
Gum trees or Eucalyptus trees are native to Australia. They dominate the Australian landscape and can be seen in forests, wetlands, bush lands, and shrub lands.
It is beautiful to look at especially with the sky as background. But my concern is, the Eucalyptus tree has a shallow root system that makes it dangerous. There have been many cases, especially when there’s strong wind, that the branches of the Gum tree just falls off and the tree is just fully uprooted (as seen below).
