Eucalyptus combine to form the most varied and adaptable trees of them all and are amongst the heaviest nectar and pollen producers. Many believe that the first eucalypt was brought into New Zealand during the early 1800s. By 1880, there was certainly quite a large number of eucalypts being planted in the country. There was little further planting activity until the late 1950s. In 1991, the New Zealand Hardwood and Eucqual Sawmills began promoting eucalypt timber a a high quality timber.
