Gum Tree by night, spot lit for Christmas.
Tree for Sale : Tasmanian Blue Gum - Eucalyptus globulus ( house included ). I would never suggest planting one, growing to 15-50m high x 12-25m wide they are completely inappropriate for a suburban sized garden.
A Kookaburra having a laugh at us!
A good friend of ours, Steve from Arlington Tree Services lopped a few branches for us to lighten up the canopy.Unfortunately the more you trim Eucalypts the more they re-shoot so you should always call in a specialist.Someone cut this one back to a stump then allowed it to re-grow which is why its main trunk is multi stemmed.The local council trims the side which over hangs the street to allow traffic through ( told you it was big! )
