Eucalyptus Tree

Fast Growing... Cold Hardy... Wonderfully Aromatic!


The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.

  •  Incredibly aromatic
  •  Grows up to 6 ft. per year!
  •  Drought tolerant

This is the most fragrant Eucalyptus tree that we know of.  Some other varieties are faint or have no smell at all. Not this one.

You have likely smelled its leaves in flower arrangements or in potpourie. The dusty blue-green leaves of this Eucalyptus are refreshingly aromatic. You'll enjoy walking outside just to smell it and look at it.

Attractive, peeling bark also carries the familiar fragrance for use in closets, drawers, or anywhere you want to add a fresh scent. No leaves to rake, it keeps its foliage year-round. Now you can enjoy color in the winter when all other trees are bare and brown.

Let it's fresh, clean aroma fill your home for days. It quickly grows back trimmed branches. Wonderful in flower arrangements, with its showy leaves.

Natural flea and tick protection. Put some leaves under your pet's bed or in areas where they like to sleep.

Your tree comes in a short bush-like form, but grows very quickly… up to 6 ft. per year! Tolerates drought and is cold tolerant down to zone 7b or in a protected zone 7a.

Grows indoors or out. If you live in the far north, grow it in a container and bring it inside for the winter. Your home will smell amazing.

A popular variety for home health remedies that treat a variety of respiratory and skin problems. My family uses eucalyptus and lemon grass to naturally repel ticks and mosquitoes when we go camping. It's a great alternative to Deet.

The demand for Eucalyptus trees has risen significantly over the past few years. This is a fun tree that does a lot. We recommend ordering soon while supplies are still available.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Eucalyptus Tree can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Eucalyptus Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Eucalyptus Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Eucalyptus Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Eucalyptus Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

We planted our Eucalyptus Tree in the front yard and in one year it has doubled in size. Not sure if it will grow to look like the one in the picture but it is a nice tree and as it gets large will smell nice on breezy day. I have cut a few branches off and put them in the house and months later they still have a scent to them.

By: Elena in Driftwood, TX
I am very happy with my eucalyptus tree purchase, it survived a hot weather 109 degrees, it survived the deer! They tried to eat it, and it is standing so tall and beautiful in just one year in spite of all the adversities. I highly recommend this Eucalyptus Tree to anyone.

By: Lynne
You can not kill this tree!! It grows and grows I keep having to trim it because it grows so quickly. I love it!!

By: Tree Lover in NC
This really is a fast growing tree! We planted our tree in January of last year and it was less than a foot tall, now in June of 2009 it is almost 5 feet tall. Wow, and it naturally repels fleas and ticks from your yard and it stays beautiful all year round, this is a must have tree!!!!!!

By: Lena in Diamond Bar, NC
I have a lovely Eucalyptus in my back yard. Its quite old as its trunk is 2 to 3 feet in diameter and 25-35 feet tall as I keep it trimmed back.

By: Alan
Awesome Tree. The eucalyptus is growing great now. Planted it in planter for almost a year since it was small. Planted it in front garden bed corner to give height. Beautiful tree!

By: Melanie in Pine Grove, CA
The eucalyptus tree i got from you guys is the best! It stared out very small, now its like 7 feet tall and plus it does great in the snow. Where I live we get a lot of snow and last year it did wonderful. It didnt hurt it at all it just keeps getting bigger and smells great.

By: Virginia in Stewartstown, PA
I always wanted to try and grow a eucalyptus tree but living in southeast PA I figured it wold not be successful. This plant has grown huge this summer! I am very pleased with the ease in growing this specimen. I will definitely purchase here again. Great healthy products.

By: Janella in Eldora, NJ
I love my Eucalyptus tree, the aroma is increbible. It has gotten so big since we planted it. In the summer I even rub some of it on my dog to keep the bugs away.

By: Alan
I bought 3 trees, they are all doing quite well. Im actually considering adding a couple more in spring. These Eucalyptus trees branch a lot and need a stake to stay the slightest bit straight. It would be a large bush otherwise. If you have any other interesting trees, even oter Eucalyptus species, that would grow in my area then I would be interested. I like to grow unusual things.

By: Linda
I was so pleased with my two plants and how they were shipped so well. The size is perfect for my sun room. We will be buying more plants from you! Thank you so much. Just love my plants!!!!!!

By: Wes
Amazing trees- also dangerous. The awesome smell comes with a risk. The leaves contain oil- oils that are flammable. I found this out when burning brush. The dried leaves/twigs go up like gasoline.

Rate of growth is true. I ordered two trees about three years ago. They are now bigger than the very $$$ oak trees that I had to plant with a back hoe.

By: Brenda
I can't keep my eyes off this tree. It is so beautiful. Initially I thought that it was dead but it is growing and so healty looking now. Each time I walk outside, I have to walk over and take a look. I love unique tree and would so love to have another one of these on the opposite side of the yard but my job shut down and I don't have the funds to purchase another but this tree is every thing that you said and more. Thank you so much for being the provider. Hopefully at some point in time, I will be able to buy a second one. Thank you so much. By the way it has grown at least 2 additional feet since it was planted.

By: Moises Alanis
Beautiful tree has grown incredibly well! I have two and one has grown several feet in less than a year. Aromatic and a unique addition to the garden!

By: Jeanne Summers
I am so proud of my Tree. I live in Missouri where the soil is rocky and clay like dirt and the tree seems to be doing fine. Like they said "Easy to grow." I bought it for a shade tree as well as for decor. I plan to buy more as well as reccomend your company to my family and friends.

By: Michael
I purchased two eucalyptus trees from you around August of 2010. In the past year one of them has grown to about 7 feet tall and the other is about 5 feet tall. They are both about 6 feet in diameter. They are really doing well and growing well beyond my expectations. I plan to buy at least 2 more in the spring. I am really impressed. Thank you for supplying such a fine product. The company name says it all Fast Growing Trees.

By: JD
I kept this inside and it grew so bog I was forced to cut it back, now it GROWS again...

By: Jo Johnson
I love my eucalyptus tree! It has grown so fast and is absolutely beautiful!! Delivery was on time and my tree was packaged so carefully. Thank you so much!

By: Sheila
Larger than order size, growing fast and strong

By: Laura
I bought an eucalyptus in April. I was expecting a bigger tree, so I was very disappointed when this tiny plant arrived. Anyway, I followed all the instruction to take a good care. A few weeks ago, the bottom part of the eucalyptus became brown. I took a peace to a nursery, they teach me how to treat the plant. Anyway, the eucalyptus is all brown and dry now. Fast growing trees doesn't give you guaranties. My advise is: go and buy in another place that offers guaranties. Most places do it at least for 6mo., most of then for 1 year. I could spend my money wisely.

By: Kim Minotis
When this tree came it look like a stick and was very disappointed by the size. The first year it grew a few branches, then over the winter we thought it died.
The branches it had sprouted, turned brown and did not smell. The other day I went out to pull it out and from under ground it was sprouting new branches. So we will see what it does this year

By: Verna Brown
My plant was packed well and arrived quickly. I followed the planting instructions and already have new growth. I am so excited to have a eucalyptus tree and I will order another.

By: Helen
I LOVE my Eucalyptus Tree. I live in zone 9 and I agree with another review: stake your tree.
Mine has grown 6feet in one year.

By: Matt
Zone 7 here, I bought 3 of these trees and they're doing fine...I saw some comments from others in my zone and I'm not sure what happened to their trees but mine are fine as are my neighbors and someone else down the street. Awesome tree!

I just received my tree, I've wanted one and been researching for a while know. Really beautiful. I am so worried about winter, how resistant are they to the cold. I live in central WA..

By: Cameron
I bought and planted the tree in my yard where it lasted one year. It grew pretty quick getting to a height of 12ft. My tree grew top heavy and broke in half on it's own. I bought a second tree in August and it didn't last the winter. It died from the cold weather told to me by a local Botonist. I live in zone 7B where it gets mildly cold in the winter on avg. and was told by Fast-Growing Trees that the winter was no problem. My Botonist said it was too cold for that tree to survive in this planting zone. She was right. Next time I'm shopping local and listening to my local Botonist!

By: Karen
extremely small, florist type shoot of eucalyptus attached to a bamboo stick, stuck in a pot with poor, tiny roots for an awful lot of money.

By: Elizabeth
I planted this tree last spring (zone 7) it did grow very fast I would say almost doubled in size, but it has turned brown now not sure why. I am not sure if it is dead or I need to give it time to recover. Maybe zone 7 winters isn't really the right fit for this tree.

By: Jerome Jones
I bought my tree one year ago and it is has grown to 15 feet in one year. I just ordered 2 more.

Will the eucalyptus lose there leaves in the fall?

How does this tree tolerate very moist soil? This is not a marsh area or one where water is standing. However there are times in spring when the ground is spongy and soft. I also like the tulip popular and the sweet bay magnolia. The idea of year round green is appealing. My zip is 74012. Please offer some suggestions.
A shopper on Jul 8, 2014
Best Answer: The Eucalyptus Tree doesn't like moist soil or being over watered. Watering is a key step in removing any pests which may also share the plants desire to stay warm and dry. Try not to over water, these plants come from a dry desert and prefer to live as such, but do well in our warm temperature. Eucalyptus trees, which normally do well without irrigation, might appreciate occasional deep irrigation through summer.

How much is the Eucalyptus Tree? I do not know what Zone I am in for being NW Iowa.
A shopper on Jun 20, 2014
Best Answer: The Eucalyptus tree varies in price depending on availability and size. It's currently on back order and our sales often change every 3 to 4 days, so I can't give you a good price estimate currently. NW Iowa is in zone 5, but some of it is in zone 4.

I live near a landfill with a slight unpleasant smell (only on warm days when wind is blowing the right direction). Would a few of these between my home and the landfill alleviate some of the smell? Other suggestions?
brandon on Jun 12, 2014
Best Answer: I think that the best smelling live trees are the fast growing arborvitae.Then plant lavender,oregano,catmint and bee balm where you sit outside and they will mask some of the aromas.Coneflowers and some marigolds are very fragrant too.
