    Hi. Can anyone identify these three Australian trees (I believe they are a eucalypt variants, but I don't know):

    Apologies if they're too far or are unclear.

    Are these all street trees in Sydney?

    Yep.

    I believe the third one is either melaleuca or a cypress. The first one is probably a eucalyptus. But I can't really tell.

    Well, hopefully one of the Australian members checks in sometime soon. I've looked for whether a street trees app or an open-data listing of the street trees exists, but I can't find one.

    To get accurate answers it would help to have clear close up pics to show the leaves, flowers, seed pods.etc
    To id a tree from a distance is hard.

    Nevermind the first one. I found its species (Brush Box).

    The second one is not that important anymore. So don't worry about that too.

    Now I want to know the species of this tree only. It could be a Melaleuca (or even a Cypress), but I cannot determine it species (I have provided a closeup view of its leaves too):
