Tree Guru's Top Picks

  • The 'New Norcia Mission' Olive tree will begin fruiting about 3 years after planting and are beautifully ornamental as well as functional. They will handle harsh, dry climates brilliantly
  • The Australian Bottle tree or Boab derives its name from the bottle like trunk that develops as the tree matures. From 5 8 years a distinct bottle neck shape will appear and the tree will become a talking piece for your garden
  • The White Cedar can handle the harshest of Australian climates and belongs to the mahogany family. Its is a deciduous, shade tree and will grow up to 12 metres in a home garden environment with a span of 6 8 metres
