eucalypt disease?

Postby lesley » Sun Nov 08, 2015 5:42 pm

I have a 5 year old Eucalyptus Macrandra in my Melbourne garden. It seems healthy but there is a lumpy swelling at its trunk base just above the soil level. I am wondering if this means a disease? I am attaching a photo. Thanks.

Hi Lesley. Was your tree a grafted one?

My initial thought was that this may simply have been a lignotuber, but it seems this particular species doesn't have one.

No I don't think it's grafted.
