Description

Allocasuarina torulosa, commonly known as the River She Oak, is a native Australian tree that holds ecological significance and ornamental appeal. This species belongs to the Casuarinaceae family and is known for its slender, tall growth, unique needle-like foliage, and its role in stabilizing riverbanks and providing habitat for wildlife.

Common Name: River She Oak
Mature Height (meters): Typically grows to a height of 12-20 meters
Mature Width (meters): Spreads to approximately 6-8 meters
Spacing: Plant at least 6-8 meters apart to accommodate its tall and spreading growth habit.
Foliage: The River She Oak is characterized by its fine, needle-like foliage, which resembles the appearance of pine needles. The foliage is dark green and adds a textural element to the landscape.
Flowering Period: Inconspicuous flowers are produced in late winter to early spring, followed by small, woody cones that contain seeds.
Form/Habit: Allocasuarina torulosa has an upright and slender growth habit, with branches that tend to sway gracefully in the wind.
Uses: Ideal for revegetation projects, stabilizing riverbanks, and creating windbreaks. It also has ornamental value and can be used in large landscapes and parklands to add a unique texture and form to the environment.
Sun: Prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade.
Maintenance: Low maintenance; minimal pruning is required to remove dead or overcrowded branches.
Water Requirement: Drought-tolerant once established, but regular watering is needed during the establishment phase.
