Why are eucalyptus trees such a problem for rain forests?



  1. 0 Votes

    Eucalyptus trees are a problem in rain forests because they are often introduced as a non-native species that multiplies rampantly with no natural checks on its growth. Furthermore, the many benefits of eucalyptus trees have led many people to grow eucalyptus plantations. As the climate of rainforest areas is perfect for eucalyptus trees, this means that some rainforest native species are cleared in order to make room for the eucalyptus plantation.

    For example, in Chile there are thousands of non-native eucalyptus trees, as well as thousands of acres of land that have been cleared to create eucalyptus plantations.
