If you can send a photgraph that may help simplify identification of the problem. It maybe leaf blister sawflies which are small insects that mine the leaves giving a brown blistered look to the leaf. Another option could be leaf spot which is generally more survire on the juvenile leaves of Eucalypts. Often these do not need to be treated. Do you have possums in your area that could be running up the truck causing damage?
