Product Description

Description: A small to medium-sized tree occuring naturally in challenging coastal regions adjacent to beaches and estuaries. Its tolerance of drought, exposed sites, sandy soils and salty conditions makes it a robust tree for coastal plantings and useful for regenerative sites. Its growth habit can be various – occasionally upright with a dense and narrow crown but more often with a shorter trunk and an open and spreading canopy. Casuarina equisetifolia has long and weeping branchlets (or needles). Use for harsh coastal sites, poor soils and sands where drought tolerance and hardiness are considerations. Responds well to structural pruning.
