pruning eucalyptus

Posted by Joyce Dostart , Mar 07,2005,00:19       Forum

My gardeners pruned my old huge eucalyptus tree and removed all greenery and foliage. Only the large trunk and bare branches are left. I have been told by husband and neighbor that without the leaves/foliage the tree cannot perform photosynthesis and will die! Is this true? Is there anything I can do to keep it alive and have the leaves return? Thank you
