ucalyptus is Boyce Thompson Arboretum’s oldest collection with its first accessions dating back to the early 1920’s. The collection focuses on xeric or desert species native to Australia. Nearly 430 individual plants represent 111 taxa, nearly half of which are species of conservation concern. 41% of accessions are of documented wild origin. Eucalyptus face many threats in the wild including deforestation, land alterations for agriculture, livestock grazing, more intense and frequent wildfires, and diseases like myrtle rust.
