Windbreak

Windbreak

In many areas of California ranch land, eucalyptus trees were planted as windbreaks between fields or orchards. Nowadays, many are bulldozed because of the brittleness of the trees, dropping large branches from several feet up. Somewhere I read they are called “widow makers” in Australia because of this – easy to kill someone standing below. While I was looking, I didn’t spot any koalas.
