Thanks for your reply to my original post Daisy , that was helpful. So that leads me to ask , when we talk about pruning the rainbow eucalyptus , what exactly does that entail because the tree is not ,as you can see from the previous picture, a tree with a lot of branches and apparently from what I've researched, the tree drops the branches as it matures and gets new ones. Should we be topping this tree to limit its height?

I have no idea what you can do. If you top it, it will be a tall stick with brush on top. The pruning to shape and keep it small should have started when you got it.
