IMPORTANCE OF EUCALYPTUS TREES
Eucalyptus taxa are polygenus plants comprised of more than 500 species that are native to the Oceania region but predominantly Australia. Many of these Eucalyptus plants have excellent growth properties, the ability to adapt to various environments, and a low level of serious insect damage. Since they are also suited industrially to the production of lumber, pulp, and firewood, afforestation of Eucalyptus species is conducted in various regions around the world.
