No one knows exactly why overwintering monarchs prefer eucalyptus over
native trees.  But  it is a fact that they do.

As we have seen, however, Anne, Doug and Liz and many others of the
lepidoptera conservation establishment  don't want eucalyptus planted in
Pacific Grove, California under any circumstances to revitalize and
maintain the monarch habitat.  All other options have been considered
and discarded by city planners, foresters and monarch biologists.
