Shelter - Single Row with Poplar + Cortaderia Richardii

Length Options

PRICE: $424.71

This plant pack consists of a planting plan, plants, fertiliser tablets, and plant protectors.

This plant pack is designed for shelterbelt purposes. It includes both deciduous and evergreen species, providing both shelter and minimal shading over winter. 

Crowsnest poplar is primarily used for shelterbelts and windbreaks, because of its narrow habit and fast growth. As a deciduous tree, this is great for a shelter planted east to west, as in winter the loss of leaves will miminse shading on the south side of the planting, while still creating a windbreak. Crowsnest is moderately resistant to rust, drought tolerant, and is best suited to drier, inland locations as it has a low salt tolerance. It will grow to a height of 20-30 metres, and is frost hardy. Cortaderia richardii is used in this planting to establish a base which will provide a low shelter year round, screen from the road, and provide a visually interesting shelter. 

It will grow to a height of 20-30 metres.

The planting plan is for an area 4.5m wide x 100m long.
