Symptoms of dieback

CROWN THINNINGEPICORMIC SHOOTSTREE DEATH

Dieback in eucalypt species is often first recognised by crown thinning as branches become increasingly bare as foliage is reduced.

In response to reduced foliage, eucalypts will attempt to regenerate through epicormic shoots along the trunk and branches.

If the tree is not resilient enough to the level of stress it is experiencing, the remaining leaves and shoots will die and fall of leaving a bare tree structure.
