A euculyptue is a big treeunless you coppice it regularly, 2011 we lost a big one to frost and cost money to get rid of it. Also the roots suck water and nutrients from the surrounding soil, so much so that new plants have a hard time competeing.
The trees can cause dense shade andvery few plants will grow ibeneath them.
Shear biomass -- large Euculyptus drop great quantities of leaves, burying smaller plants, and often whole branches) that break even big stuff planted below. They are not native in Ireland and support nothing that I can think of insects, birds mammels. it dosent even burn well.
And finally The leaf litter and root exudates of some Eucalyptus ] species are allelopathic for certain soil microbes and plant species.
