When Bigger is Better. These 100L trees will bring instant benefits.

What are the benefits of planting larger trees? We explain why buying advanced trees offers both immediate benefits and long term rewards.

Environmentalists and ecologists talk about diversity in plant selection. Councils, keen on ensuring that parks and streets remain green, advocate spreading the risk of loss by mixing their planting schedules with both native and exotic trees and with selections that will more likely adapt and thrive in our changing climatic conditions. 

Starting out only growing natives, our business has diversified to include over 320 indigenous and non-indigenous lines but growing large trees, both native and exotic remains in many ways at the heart and soul of the Speciality Trees business.

As an example, our stock of the following lines are just about ready to flush out with the beginnings of spring in the southern parts of Australia. Seldom can you find these selections in this advanced size. They may have been given a light prune this time of year, making the tree look a little smaller than expected, but this is done strategically to ensure maximum performance, which in the longer term, benefits the longevity of the tree.

Buying big is worth the investment.

All the nurturing in terms of formative pruning has been for you so what you have now is the perfect tree to plant.  It will be strong and resilient to varied growing conditions as it has been encouraged to grow with minimal reliance on water with just the right exposure to bugs, to bolster its armour against pests and disease once planted out.

It has built-in immunity. This is one of the advantages of the advanced tree and why we are one of the best growers of large trees in the business. Talk to us about your landscaping needs and we'd be happy to grow specific lines to this size for you. 

Here is a sample of 100L trees on offer this spring 2020:

Choose Queensland Brush Box (Lophostemon confertus) and Lemon Scented Gum (Corymbia citriodora) for an outstanding large feature tree. Both make magnificent focal points in a landscape with space. Of course, the scent from the Lemon Scented Gum particularly after rain will make you wonder why you haven’t planted one before.

Choose Agonis flexuosa ‘Lemon & Lime’ or ‘Tolley’s Upright’ Olive for screening. Both selections make superb screens due to bushy yet narrow foliage - one is native and one is exotic - but both provide a softening effect along fences, external buildings and built-up neighbourly structures.  

For a greener, fatter, more prominent leaf, choose Tristaniopsis laurina DOW10 Luscious® PBR or our very own Waterhousea floribunda ‘Whisper’. Both are top of the list for bigger leaf screening and With a little light prune each year, both of these native selection bush up a dream to provide full block-out to around 8m tall.
