Cassuarina cunninghamiana

Size
  • Casuarina cunninghamiana is a tall, nitrogen fixing tree suitable for cultivation across a wide range of climates, extending from cool temperate areas to the seasonally dry tropics. Under cultivation it tolerates drought, seasonal waterlogging and slight to moderate salinity but requires protection from grazing animals during the establishment phase. It has been used in agroforestry, particularly where shelterbelts area required to protect crops and livestock from wind, as it makes an excellent windbreak. It is considered relatively slow growing but produces outstanding fuelwood.
