This plant pack is designed for shelterbelt purposes.
Crowsnest poplar is primarily used for shelterbelts and windbreaks, because of its narrow habit and fast growth. Planted at 1m spacings, it creates a great shelter with the branches growing upright and close to the stem. 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.
The planting plan is for an area 4.5m wide x 100m long.
This plant pack consists of a planting plan, plants, and fertiliser tablets.
