Remember when we convinced California to import Eucalyptus trees and then they ran wild and took over and now Cali's bushfires are 10x worse then they ever were? California wildfires are pretty similar to ours and both our fire fighters share training, personal and equipment during bad seasons.

Yeah, they're a trap, eucalypts. Excellent firewood, mind you.

And Aus and Canada and Cali (and NZ) sharing firefighters every year is a heartwarming thing.

Same thing happened in Portugal. The country with the most eucalyptus per sqm in the world.
