Fire Retardant Trees

Category
Trees and Plants > Fire Retardant Trees

Plants can help with fire proofing your property and are an integral part of a fire plan. Some plants are more flammable than others but keep in mind that given the right conditions all plants will burn.

Fire retardant plants can absorb more of the heat of an approaching firestorm without burning than flammable plants do. Fire retardant plants can trap embers and sparks and reduce the wind speed if correctly positioned.

Fire retardant ground covers can help to slow and lower the height of the fire.

Dwarf Mulberry - Majestic

$49.00

Very low chill tree for the subtropics. The fruits of this mulberry are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. Prune your tree after fruiting to keep under 3mtrs, and to encourage multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree.

Remember it makes a wonderful temporary dye for children faces and hands! (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video ) Preferable to plant in the subtropics as in temperate regions, flowering is too early and yields are subsequently affected.
