shade tolerance
Prefers full sun.
Low tolerance to dry soils.
low soil oxygen
Low tolerance to waterlogging.
compacted soils
Moderately tolerant to a range of environmental conditions.
pest + disease
Generally not prone to insects that cause obvious damage to foliage, can be
susceptible to trunk, bark, and twig cankers and pests trunk borers.
root disturbance
Surface roots generally not a problem, transplants easily.
Low incidence of problem from planting out as industry standard, 2m plus
container grown trees, avoid transplanting in autumn.
Narrow branch angles may lead to susceptibility top splitting at the branch
crotch; requires formative pruning to develop strong structure preferably with
single trunk and good branch spacing.
No records of species becoming established in urban landscapes by self-sown
limb shear
weed risk
under powerlines
Not suitable.
