Product Description

Eucalyptus camaldulensis, commonly known as the River Red Gum or simply Red Gum, is one of the most iconic and widely recognized species of eucalyptus trees. Native to Australia, it is a tall, majestic evergreen tree with distinctive, smooth, coppery to reddish-brown bark, which peels away in strips to reveal the light-colored bark underneath. The River Red Gum gets its name from its preference for riparian habitats and riverbanks. It is not only an important tree for its ecological role but also a valuable timber species. Additionally, it has cultural significance to indigenous communities in Australia and provides shelter and habitat for various wildlife.


  1. Climate: Eucalyptus camaldulensis is well-suited to warm, temperate, and subtropical climates. It is frost-tolerant to some extent but prefers regions with mild winters and hot, dry summers.

  2. Sunlight: Plant your Red Gum tree in a location that receives full sun. It requires plenty of direct sunlight to thrive and reach its full potential.

  3. Soil: Provide well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH (around 6.0-7.5). These trees are adaptable to a range of soil types but prefer sandy or loamy soils.

  4. Planting: Plant River Red Gum trees in the spring or early autumn. Dig a hole that is as deep and wide as the root ball, and place the tree at the same level it was growing in the nursery container. Space multiple trees at least 15-20 feet apart to allow for their mature size.

  5. Watering: While River Red Gums are drought-tolerant once established, they benefit from regular watering during the first few years to help establish a strong root system. Afterward, water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry between waterings.

  6. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch, such as wood chips or compost, around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture, regulate temperature, and suppress weeds.

  7. Fertilization: Fertilization is usually not necessary for Eucalyptus camaldulensis if grown in its native range. In areas with nutrient-poor soils, you can apply a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in the spring.

  8. Pruning: Prune your Red Gum tree as needed to remove dead or diseased branches and to maintain a healthy shape. Avoid heavy pruning, as eucalyptus trees have the ability to shed branches naturally.

  9. Pest and Disease Control: River Red Gums are generally hardy, but they can be susceptible to pests like scale insects and psyllids. Monitor for potential issues and address them as needed.

  10. Propagation: Propagate Eucalyptus camaldulensis from seeds, which require stratification (a period of cold and moist conditions) for successful germination.

Eucalyptus camaldulensis, the River Red Gum, is a magnificent tree with cultural, ecological, and practical significance. By providing the right growing conditions and care, you can enjoy the grandeur of this iconic eucalyptus species in your landscape while contributing to its conservation and habitat value.
