Okay time for legislation to cut down eucalyptus trees anywhere near homes and apartments.

Back home down under the Eucs usually have break outs like this at Christmas..( the hottest part of our Summer) still can’t believe that the democratic people’s republic of California has not outlawed these dangerous trees, much like My home land has outlawed Guns!

forreal Eucalyptus tree’s are weed’s and need to be clear of any buildings or roads with those weakass roots.

I love eucalyptus trees. They smell wonderful and are nature’s insect repellant.

When I was in Australia the tour guide told me the eucalyptus trees were full of koala bears that chew tree limbs like our American beavers do… lots of injuries from falling limbs down there and it practically rains koala bears on windy days… he said you’re a lucky mate if you only get hit by the limb because if a startled K-bear falls on you it will tear your face off!
We should count our blessings that beavers can’t climb trees.

JB #9 – Lived in Pine Creek 17 years and just moved out Friday. I can tell you homeowners have been all over the HOA and inept management the past 9-10 years about overgrown and unhealthy trees. All I can say is I am glad to be gone before the lawsuit by the adjacent HOA and the special assessment to cover the cost.

If the one on Clayton Road falls they will feel it in Napa County.

That is a branch of the tree? It’s as big as a tree!
