A huge eucalyptus tree in my back yard blew down a couple weeks ago. I've been gathering branches between the rain spells and trying to dry them for arrangements. The leaves are also good as a decongestant when boiled in water and good for many other medicinal purposes plus they keep fleas away. When I planted this tree two years ago it was about a foot high and when it blew over it was about 30 ft tall. Faaaaast growing tree.
