What species selection do Oz Tree's offer?
Oztrees offers a large variety of native plants to suit all conditions and soil types. Eucalypts, Banksia’s, Melaleuca’s, Leptospermum’s, Sheoaks, Callistemons, Hakea’s and many more . Advantages of our seedlings are that when you take them from our harsh environment generally the plants will go into a situation that is less harsh and therefore the survival rate will be higher.
What ground preparation is required?
If you want the trees to exceed your expectations in growth then site preparation is the key. Ripping and mounding will provide an ideal environment for a seedling to grow. It provides an environment that is free of barriers, such as buckshot gravel, hardpans caused by livestock or machinery, it provides an increased depth of nutrient rich topsoil and a greater volume of cultivated soil for the roots to grow.
Weed control is another essential components of a successful planting. No weed control then don’t bother! Research has shown that controlling weeds is one of the most important activities for successful tree growing. Without weed control the plants are competing for nutrients and water.
We recommend using a chemical regime which is as follows:
- In spring the year before planting, use a knockdown chemical.
- In the autumn before planting (after the autumn rains have begun) with a knockdown chemical.
- Approx.. 3 weeks prior to planting with a knockdown and residual chemical.
What distance to plant? What distance between rows?
For plantations and shelterbelts the ideal distance between plants is 2.5m and the ideal distance between rows is 2.5m.
For woodlots we recommend 3m between plants and 3m between rows.
