Description: In 1961 a feasibility study was done to determine if certain Eucalyptus species could be grown along the California North Coast for timber or ornamental purposes. Of the 207 trees, representing 31 species, planted on the Redwood Experimental Forest, only 12 trees in 5 species were recorded in the 1976 survival examination. The single most damaging factor was frost. More than 40 percent mortality was attributed to the 1972 freeze.
Keywords: Eucalyptus species, exotic species, species trials, Redwood Experimental Forest, northern California, frost damage, mortality rate
