I cut back my eucalyptus trees at the end of last summer and I have about 8 of them in a row, they are about 6 years old and all the leaves are now brown, there are new shoots at the very bottom of the trunks, should I cut them right back or if I leave them will they grow back, they are about 10 foot tall



i would be inclined to leavethem a bit longer beforeyou cut them back just to see if they throw any shoots further up later on or next spring perhaps .

To Noseypotter Thank you for your reply. I think the same. Do you think I should remove the shoots at the bottom to perhaps encourage growth further up or not, please let me know what you think.
