Eucalyptus occidentalis yate tree failure risk safety winds
Whole-of-tree structural failure in a Eucalyptus occidentalis (swamp yate) tree in Reynella, South Australia. The tree was healthy and structurally sound above ground level, but grew on a very thin soil, which when combined with the heavily-crowned characteristics of the tree and strong winds, caused the structural failure of the tree.
