Lili's informational thought of the day
Some species of Eucalyptus or gum trees have a reputation for dropping branches without warning, especially in summer, and this can cause death or injury. The river red gum is particularly notorious for this problem, and the shedding of large limbs without warning is more likely to occur in mature trees. Despite the well-known risks, some dickheads like to protest when city councils and other organizations try to get eucalyptus trees of risky species removed from populated areas.
