In 2000 we planted a windbreak across the property on the advice of a landscape designer and an organic farm consultant. These tuarts have done well - they are the indigenous large tree species for the area. I have planted a number of other species as well.
This is Eucalyptus erythrocorys. ( I don't think that spelling is right.) I have 5 of these, grown from seed. I have harvested seed from many trees I like the look of, from verges and parks, no matter what their heritage, particularly seeking trees which look as though they will be good forage for bees. I am very proud of having established trees from seed - these ones in particular love our limestone-y sandy soil. And the bees love them too!
