yes did watch it last night - thats the problem with so many species in the one area and not mixed up with other species as occurs naturally. Very scary really.
We have 100 acres of sandlewoods planted with acacias and jam tree hosts - no water courses near us!! BJ

We watched both episodes. Very interesting and quite a worry.

DH has been looking up information about the trees they're using in these Eucalyptus Plantations and it's quite frightening. China and the US have them so they don't flower and are 'improving' the leaves toxicity to kill insects so they don't need to spray!

Where's this in the media!!!

Doesn't take much grey matter to see what the future holds for our bush, as we drive around we'll see lots of trees but nothing else, just dead forest.

I haven't finished reading this but you may be interested as well:
