Access all the information needed for control of this noxious weed, including weed identification, herbicide application and spray timings.

Weed Description

Description

Eucalypt exhibit a variety of habits including shrubs, mallees and trees. Most, however, occur as forest trees of 30 to 50 m height or as woodland trees of 10 to 25 m height.

Bark types roughly fall into two categories. There is the persistent type, the ‘rough barks’ (e.g. stringybarks, boxes, peppermints and ironbarks), or the partly or wholly regularly shedding type, the ‘smooth barks’ (e.g. scribbly gums).
