HELP WITH TREE IDENTIFICATION ...
Hi! Can anyone identify this tree that has decided to grow in my garden? I noticed it one day as a small seedling about 5 inches high so decided to leave it to see what happened - and this is the result. This photo was actually taken a year ago so the tree is now quite a bit taller - a very fast grower. It is about 18-24 months old now. I live in Menorca so have a Mediterranean climate. I cannot find much on the internet that would help me to identify it. It does resemble a eucalyptus (a bit with the leaves) but definitely isn't. I have noticed that it is used as a municipal tree by the local town councils and there are many roads in town with these trees planted in them. I looked around locally and there don't seem to be any in the near vicinity, but I guess the wind or a bird has dropped this when it was a seed!! Any help towards a name would be great! Many thanks.
