I've heard they've become a bit of a weed in California, like many foreign plants have in Australia.

There are many mature eucalyptus in the East Bay hills, and their continued presence is controversial. They look nice, but fire spreads quickly in a eucalyptus grove.

Yes, it's part of their eco-strategy. Their combustible oils and ribbons of shed bark promote fire, from which they easily recover; fire that in many cases eliminates their competition. This is why they're so dominant in much of Australia, where fire is a regular feature of the landscape.

They do burn hot! We burn a lot of eucalyptus in our fireplace (no other heat in my home).

I LOVE this image where you were able to pan with the people/vehicle to keep that part of the image sharp, but blur the background!

Job well done!

A shot my wife got while I was foolishly looking around a different place on the docks for a pic of fisherman working - and a shot that didn't exist - for me.

Portland, Maine, commercial docks. If you get there around 5am, and stick around for a few hours, there's plenty to see there. Then, as you get really hungry, or cold, eat breakfast at Becky's!
