The great thing about modern gardening and the online landscaping market place is that redecorating and renovating your garden doesn’t necessarily have to be confined to plants and flowers that are native to your own region. The world is certainly your oyster, but here at Arbor Climb we actually think that celebrating your native flora, at least in some parts of your garden, is a fantastic way of paying tribute to the nature on your very doorstep! Trees, in particular, are something that you might want to consider, because it isn’t always ideal to have an adult variety shipped from somewhere else! With that in mind, here are five trees for your garden that are native to Queensland.

  • Bottle Tree

The bottle tree is one of the most distinctive native trees of Queensland. It is most notable for its trunk that is shaped kind of like a skittle, and it has green bark that starts to turn grey with age in many varieties. There are more than thirty bottle tree species across the region.

  • Bunya Pine

The bunya pine tree is a really big, noble type of tree that is easily recognised thanks to its large umbrella style head that can tower over lots of other trees in the bush. Fun fact, the tree’s scientific name, Araucaria Bidwilli, is in honour of the famous botanist John Carne Bidwill.

  • Umbrella Tree

Looking exactly how it sounds, the beautiful umbrella tree is native to a specific part of Queensland, that is, the coast along the north of the Tropic of Capricorn.

  • Mango Tree

Queensland mango trees bloom in the winter, but it’s worth noting that a prolific flowering does not always mean that you are going to get a huge crop of fruit!

  • Silky Oak

The silky oak tree is native to south-eastern Queensland and is very widely planted because of the beautiful golden yellow flowers that it displays during the early summer months.If you need someone to come and make room in your garden for a brand new project, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
