What is the effects of Eucalyptus plantation on soil fertility, water level and environment?

1 Answer


Eucalyptus plant depletes the water table and reduce soil fertility by delayed decomposition.


  1. The Eucalyptus plants deplete the soil-water content and results the loss of water table due excess absorption of water from soil.
  2. The body parts especially, decomposition of Eucalyptus leaves is delayed.
  3. Heavy loss of water from soil and depletion of soil nutrients by delayed decomposition result bad effects on environment. It affects the other organisms also. Thank you
