Eucalyptus plug plants

5 year old E. glaucescens at Dartington, Totnes in Devon.

We can supply plug plants of the following species:

Eucalyptus glaucescens (Tingiringi gum)

The most popular species in recent UK plantings due to its exceptional cold tolerance, its general unpalatibility to deer and adaptability to diverse sites. It also typically shows exceptional form and dimensions.

 

Eucalyptus nitens (Shining gum)

E. nitens aged 32 months at Treworder, Cornwall.

Well suited to temperate climates with cool wet winters. In southern England this species can produce very high yields. At a site in Treworder, Cornwall the average tree height was 10.1 metres and the diameter at breast height (DBH) was 10.2 cm just 40 months after planting! Over the entire plantation this translates to an incremental yield of 30 cubic metres per hectare per year.

Eucalyptus denticulata (Errinundra shining gum)

Well suited to temperate climates with cool wet winters. In southern England these can produce very high yields up there with E. nitens.

E. rodwayii aged 44 months on waterlogged landfill site in north Kent. Soil is a thin clay cap over hardcore.

Eucalyptus rodwayii (Swamp Peppermint)

This species has a low nutrient requirement and extensive rooting ability which means that it is highly suitable for land reclamation and for shelterbelts.

Eucalyptus johnstonii (Tasmanian Yellow Gum)

This species is good on waterlogged sites

Eucalyptus dalrympleana (Mountain White Gum)

This species is good on waterlogged sites

Eucalyptus urnigera (Urn Gum)
