Small Trees Please – Big Winds Damage Urban Areas

Every time big winds hit urban areas there is a lot of damage. I just typed in Fallen Tree into a news service, and it is amazing how many people are hurt and how much property is destroyed every week by trees around the world.

Although deaths from trees are rare in Australia, property damage is not. Large Eucalypts and other large trees can be problematic in urban areas. There is a trend to using smaller safer trees that have a better reputation. Trees like Luscious, Sublime, Sweeper, Red Head and Pinnacle are being used more and more.

How important is safety as a tree selection criteria? What are the other important criteria? Trees are an important part of urban life and have many benefits. Choosing the right tree will ensure the benefits without the problems.

Sublime™ Acmena smithii 'DOW30' PBR

I just love the dense shape of this tree, and it’s beautiful lime coloured new growth. Yes this is a tree not a shrub. Most Lilly Pillys are grown as a shrub, but not Sublime™ Acmena, it’s a tree.

Sublime™ Acmena is extremely psyllid resistant, and drought and frost tolerant.  Sublime™ Acmena is ideal for screening, hedges, topiary or garden features. The foliage is dense all the way to the ground level.

Masses of white fluffy flowers appear in Summer that develop into a deep mauve berry, giving an excellent contrast against the foliage. These berries are also edible.

Sublime™ Acmena  is excellent for attracting birds to your garden. Sublime gets about 5 metres tall.  Sublime™ Acmena, its got to be one of Australia’s best trees.
