The high oil content in Eucalyptus makes it a prime source of wildfires.
Yeah; The Oz bush has adapted to regular fires but Green policies have reduced regular burnoffs so that the fuel load is now so great that the Bush actually gets destroyed.
An aside: many gum seeds need a bit of fire to allow them to germinate; intense fires burn them up. No winners with Green policies.

Sorta like California but not quite that stupid.
