Eucalyptus (Paperbark Gum?)
I live near the sea in Northwest Spain, where, due (so I'm told) to a misguided initiative in the Fifties or thereabouts, the Franco Government encouraged the planting of Eucalyptus.
Seeding as they do so well here,(plenty of rain in Galicia!) the have really 'taken over' in many areas.
As I have never used this timber except as posts, can anyone ( I'm thinking particularly of our Australian members) advise on the practical uses and possible snags about this timber?
