Advanced Trees for heating and cooling

Make your space what you want by creating your own microclimate. By working through a brief series of questions, you can make informed choices and find the perfect trees to compliment your home.

Acer rubrum 'Autumn Red'

Canadian Maple

This is a very common deciduous tree in North America. It is a beautiful rounded tree with ascending branches when young, maturing to a more rounded canopy. Great for autumn colour. Leaves stay green longer than other varieties before turning bright orange to deep red. All parts of the tree, for example flowers, twigs and seeds, are red in varying shades.

Fraxinus pennsylvanica 'Urbdell'

Urbanite Ash

This tree is attractive and tough. It has a pyramid shape with a strong, upright trunk and develops grey brown bark which becomes deeply furrowed as it matures. Yellowish-green flowers are produced in spring and in autumn, dark green, glossy foliage turns a beautiful bronze colour before falling. Suitable to a wide variety of both residential and commercial projects, it has a moderate growth rate and adapts to most soils and conditions.

Magnolia grandiflora 'Kay Parris'

A beautiful dense tree with small dark green glossy leaves and brown velvety underside so expected with Magnolia grandiflora varieties. It produces creamy white fragrant flowers anytime during the warmer months from November through February/March. These flowers are bigger than the popular 'Little Gem'. It differentiates itself from other varieties by its wavy edge to its leaf and its bright pink new growth.

Ginkgo biloba

Maidenhair Tree

This is a very slow growing and long-lived, deciduous tree with a large and elegant habit. Considered quite an ancient tree, it is known to have origins dating back to Jurassic times and is often referred to as a living fossil. Specimens exist in its native origin, China which are estimated to be over 1000 years old. It has unique, double-lobed, fan-shaped leaves with veins which spread from the stalk of the leaf. Short catkins are produced, followed by yellow fruit and the foliage is a rich green, which turns a golden yellow in autumn.

Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia'

Golden Robinia

This attractive deciduous tree provides soft filtered shade with its open habit and pinnate leaf shape. It is a moderate grower with striking lime green foliage which intensifies into a vibrant, golden colour in autumn. Long white, pea-like flowers are fragrant and appear in early summer, followed by smooth brown seed pods. Suitable for hot dry climates and coastal conditions, however it does need shelter from strong winds as the branches may tend towards being brittle.

Gleditsia triacanthos var. inermis 'Sunburst'

Golden Honey Locust

A beautiful, deciduous tree with a vase shaped canopy and soft, weeping habit. Young foliage starts off a bright yellow colour and ripens to lime green. In winter large black seedpods hang from the branches. It is a popular tree due to its vibrant colour and overall graceful appearance.

Ulmus parvifolia 'Burnley Select'

Chinese Elm

Burnley Select is a form of Ulmus parvifolia that was grown by seed from a mature Elm, originally located at Burnley College in Melbourne. It is an attractive small to medium-sized semi-deciduous, ornamental tree with glossy dark green leaves which turn shades of yellow and red in autumn before falling. Its form is wider than other Chinese Elms at an early stage. The bark exfoliates in patches, revealing beautiful mottled colours of grey, green, orange & brown.

Pistacia chinensis

Chinese Pistachio

This lovely small, deciduous tree has a moderate growth rate and great autumn colour in shades of orange, yellow and red. Bark is dark grey with shallow furrows and this variety is capable of withstanding relatively harsh conditions. Interesting pinnate leaves emerge green and leathery and although inconspicuous, clusters of small white flowers are borne in summer, followed by red drupes which mature to blue.

Pyrus ussuriensis

Manchurian Flowering Pear

This Manchurian Pear is a very popular selection largely due to the brilliant display of colour in Autumn. The dark green foliage is oval in shape with serrated edges and the onset of Autumn sees this leaves turning to a rich, dark red. Wider spreading than the 'Capital' or 'Cleveland Select', this form has a dense, rounded habit maturing to be a broad, medium-sized tree. Very early flowering, dark brown buds begin to open revealing a light pink colour before bursting into a beautiful spring show of white flowers. Small fruits follow the flowers, and although they are generally unpalatable to humans, birds and other wildlife have been known to feed off them.
