Lots of damage all around. My coconut are shredded and leaning bad barley made it. Gonna need some recovery time to straighten out. I lost my rainbow eucalyptus that I've had for Years now it survived Irma but not this one snapped off 70% of its growth. I'm not happy to lose this tree it was one of my favs and meant alot to me. It was bushy and 50ft probably and colorful. How did yalls stuff make out?

Sucks to lose a favorite tree. I remember when I first saw one and thought I wanted one. I did some research and found that it did not have a good wind resistance rating so I passed on it.

Yeah I knew it didn't have good wind resistance but that didn't stop me from having one. My coconuts are damaged pretty bad, the red spicata is very lose and the fiji is leaning and it rasied it out by about 2 inches so it's planted high now... can't really fix that without digging it up and I don't wanna do that as we're gonna be in colder weather soon.

Just do your best to fill in and stake. That’s the problem with hurricane timing around here. No time to re grow before it gets cold.

I'd say if you still have a house be thankful.  Losing a tree while sad seems like a given in this storm.

Man, I was just talking to family member today who's in Melbourne, Fla.,; we both have Rainbows, but only a few years old and about 20 feet -- Nowhere close to yours.   Positive thoughts -- I bet she comes back.. Good luck..!!

In Puerto Rico, rainbow eucalyptus nearly always break with hurricanes but then recover. 
 

I am betting your tree will recover.
