    I think my eucalyptus tree may have expired. The branches and leaves went brown in early March, and has never recovered. The small berries/flowers are black. I can't seem to find out any info on how to deal with the it. Do I cut it back to the ground (it's 18ft tall), or do I just leave it as is and hope for the best? Would appreciate some advice. Thanks, Sue

    You are right. I looked carefully and found tiny sprouts at the base and about 6" up on the trunk. I will now leave the tree as is until later in the summer. Thank you very much!
