PODOCARPUS TOTARA IN NEW ZEALAND

PODOCARPUS TOTARA - TOTARA

A medium to large sized tree with needle-like leaves of yellow and dull-green colour and a full and compact growth habit. Slow growing and grows tall and straight. Bark is a light red/brown in colour with an interesting peeling nature. It is the ultimate hedging plant for security and privacy because of the compact, tight growth form which develops over time and the spiky, pin like sharpness of the leaves. Can be trimmed lightly to form very straight lines or left to grow as open area specimen. Very useful timber.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
