Australia’s native Eucalyptus trees constantly shed significant amounts of deadwood, without looking closely the dead branches may be hard to see and almost impossible to see in the upper canopy-whilst hard to see rest assured they are there.A large mature Eucalyptus tree in Sydney will often have sections of dead wood with diameters nearing 20 centimetres or more that require removal for safety reasons. These dead branches will eventually separate from the tree and fall to the ground, sometimes from a substantial height. This situation is an obvious hazard for pedestrians passing under such trees or could cause costly damage to buildings and parked cars. The regular removal of dead wood from such trees is an effective way to manage this potential hazard in Sydney.
