From: "Gordon and Lorraine Nicholson" <iris4u@pacbell.net>

Here I go again (first time, wrong address). We are almost ready to
finalize (sign on the dotted line)  purchasing acreage that is bordered on
the East side by majestic eucalyptus trees that look centuries old and
untouched at least on the side that we are purchasing by human hands (the
other side has been kept trimmed off the ground by cattle.  We need to know
if anyone can tell us how far away to start planting both because of oils
and danger of trees falling on both humans and plants and anything else
that might be helpful.  The trees are very tall and beautiful.  We do not
want to endanger them or ourselves, since they are home to many wild birds.
 Here in the great valley that we live in (San Joaquin) eucalyptus are
found in grooves and on fence lines in several areas.  I believe some were
planted to provide fire wood at the beginning of this century.  These are
not ornamental types.  The place is perfect for us and iris growing.  There
is enough acreage to stay away from the trees, we would like to use them to
our advantage, both scenery and shade.  The soil is not sandy loam which is
what we have now, it is somewhat heavier, the place is watered with an
irrigation well and underground sprinklers, it has not been farmed for
about 15 years, so consider it virgin soil.  Please respond with ideas,
lorraine back in the valley after two inches of rain in two hours plus
thunder and lightning chased us out of the mighty Sierras.
