Native to Australia, Eucalypts are now grown on the west coast of America and southern Europe. Eucalypts have also been planted in Brazil and Ethiopia with dire ecological consequences. These evergreens represent a diverse genus of trees with about 700 different individual species. Trees are generally fast growing, and certain species can grow as tall as 60 metres.
Eucalypts have large, heavily pitted vessel elements, thin tails and pits to ray parenchyma that are mostly round, or oval in horizontal rows .
