Eucalyptus for Hedge-Screens
or Screening Trees
One of the most common questions we get asked is; is Eucalyptus suitable for screening?
Eucalyptus are evergreen and very prune-able, so they make the perfect species for screening out nosey neighbours or an inconvenient eye-sore!

green-leaved species may blend-in better with your garden setting e.g parvula, subcrenulata,
but, silver-blue leaves reflect the light so may provide more of a screening effect e.g. Azura, France Bleu.
Smaller-leaved or narrow-leaved species make good low hedges as they knit together and provide a dense screen e.g. kybeanensis, archeri,
whilst larger-leaved species may produce a better tall, individual screening tree e.g. neglecta, pauciflora group.
Whichever leaf-type you choose, make sure the tree is suitable for your climate and soil conditions.

We strongly recommend that, as you are getting a Eucalyptus 'to do job' that you set it up well for it's life in service and read about the handful of carefully researched products available on our Sundries page, starting with RootGrow at planting-time.
