An informative article, by Kathy Dillion, published in today’s Times-Standard, a newspaper that serves Eureka and the northern California coast, provides as much detail as possible as to the introduction of the eucalyptus tree to California in the mid-1800s.

The specific strand of eucalyptus, as the subject in the attached article, runs along Highway 101, the Eureka to Arcata version of California State Route 1.

P.S. When you click the link, don’t forget to read the comments at the end of the article.  Silly fun.

I don’t know if we’ll ever rid the California coast of highway iceplant (Carpobrotus edulis) or Pampas Grass (Cortaderia selloana).
