Thank you KoutaR and Conifers. It seems to me right to register tgis tree under E. camaldulensis. But I take care of any further reactions in the future.

No, don't remove them. They are great photos of great trees! But change the name to Eucalyptus sp. (if it is possible.

Ok, I will removbe the tree and I will do the same with the Nepalese one.

Thanks for the new photo. After seeing it I am very sure the tree is not E. gunnii. Eucalypts cannot be identified by from leaves only, particularly from adault leaves. Hundreds of Eucalyptus spp. have very similar leaves. For positive identification fruits and floral buds are essential. Your new photo clearly shows buds are different from E. gunnii buds. Your buds have long beaked operculum, the buds of E. gunnii short rounded to conical operculum. It is impossible to say from your photos with certainty which species it is. My guess is E. camaldulensis.

What's sure ? I have some detailed pictures of the leaves; I searched the tree in the encyclopaedia, compared some examples on this site and in other books and decided. But...I am no expert. I will add a picture of the leaves.

Are you sure it is E. gunnii? E. gunnii is native to higher altitudes in Tasmania. Could it reach such a large size in the hot climate of Marrakech?
