Trees & me

For the most part I am currently focusing on Eucalyptus trees for:

  • Firewood
  • Floral foliage
  • Constructional timber
  • Forage for bees and pollinators
  • Shade and Shelter

though as things have developed, the range is broadening.

Trees are an essential part of the ecosystem that supports life on earth and different species bring different opportunities for sustainable fuel and timber. e.g. my initial focus on Eucalyptus trees for sustainable firewood, followed by fast growing Hybrid Poplar for shelter and firewood, and species such as Robinia Pseudoacacia (Black Locust) for very durable timber well suited to damp / wet environments, so an excellent choice for environmentally friendly fence posts etc. It does not require chemical treatment.

I hope to add other beneficial species to my catalog as time goes on.
Has to be said that most trees have an advantage to humans, either directly or indirectly πŸ˜‰
