Thanks to its long and large trunk, it can be easily distinguished from other tree species. It is a perennial plant that stays green for four seasons and blooms purple flowers.
It is also known as the malaria tree because it is famous for its healing properties of malaria by some cultures and peoples. The eucalyptus tree was introduced to Anatolia as an ornamental plant for the first time by the Egyptian Khedive Abbas Hilmi Pasha, who owned a farm in Dalaman. It was used as a station tree by the French in 1886. A large number of eucalyptus trees were grown in Syria, which was under the rule of the Ottoman state at that time. Over time, it spread from Australia to many parts of the world. Since it is a tree that consumes a lot of water, it was used to dry the swamps.
