Trees and allergies often go together but with the right landscape planning, we believe sinus sensitivities can be minimised. We have assisted a number of designers recently with information on selections for childcare centres, playgrounds and schools with a low-allergen focus. While not an exhaustive list, these deciduous trees we believe are suitable and are provided below as a starting point.

A drought tolerant, slow growing tree native to the warmer parts of the east coast of Australia, this tree is known for its masses of crimson flowers in spring-summer when the tree is totally devoid of foilage. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L
This small, attractive tree has spectacular heart-shaped, burgundy coloured leaves that continually change colour throughout the year. A rich purple in spring, the foliage transforms to green over summer, followed by a multi-coloured autumn display in tones of red, apricot and gold. The branches have a distinctive, smooth, dark brown wood which contrasts well with the blossom like pink flowers that are borne before the re-emergence of leaves in spring. 30cm/14L 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L 200L
This deciduous shrub/tree has beautiful reddish/purple leaves darkening in summer. This variety turns a range of beautiful colours in autumn such as orange, red and yellow. The flower plumes are greyish giving an enhanced smokey effect.
This is an impressive purple-foliage form of the European Beech. A large deciduous tree which makes an excellent shade tree, particularly ideal used as a specimen in larger parks and gardens where its size is best accommodated. This deciduous tree has smooth, grey bark and deep purple foliage which turns a coppery-red in autumn before falling. It has inconspicuous flowers followed by spiny bracts which encase the beechnuts. 50cm/52L
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. 30cm/14L 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L 200L
A medium sized deciduous tree with a spreading, rounded crown. The glossy, dark green leaves are heart-shaped and turn a yellow-ish green in autumn. A native to Europe, it has attractive foliage and pendulous, fragrant, pale yellow flowers in summer, followed by small winged nutlets. The bark adds further interest with its ridges and furrows. A good nectar plant, this variety is a valuable food source for honey bees and butterflies. The flowers are also known to be used to make a soothing, fragrant tea. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L
A fast-growing, medium-sized, deciduous tree. 'Green Vase' matures to a graceful, uniform V-shaped tree with a short trunk and upright branching. Bark is distinctive, predominantly in shades of yellows and light greys and has a flaky appearance revealing additional textures and tones of orange, brown and pink. In autumn, the dark green leaves held through spring and summer turn to an array of colours ranging from soft yellows to orange and rusty reds. 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 100L
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. 30cm/14L 40cm/27L 50cm/52L 150L 200L
