On the Road……Olema’s Giant Eucalyptus Trees

The specimen below is probably the largest Eucalyptus I’ve seen. These trees are native to Australia and were originally planted in California — I’m guessing — as wind breaks for ranches and farms. They are quite draught resistant, making them extremely productive trees in this climatic zone. Plus, they smell really good!

  2. tucker/ yeah, these were giants. i’m kind of curious how old they are. maybe not as old as one would think b/c eucalyptus grow VERY fast.
