Generally rainforest trees can be split up into Understorey Plants, Primary Species, Secondary Species and Mature but there is some overlap

White Bean

$14.90

White Bean is a fast growing tree found on the Eastern seaboard, north from the Clarence River, NSW to North Qld and into SE Asia. It has a handsome form, as the tree develops an open branched structure, and the compound leaves cluster at the ends of the branches giving the foliage a feathery look. Attaining a maximum height of 35m and a stem diameter of up to 80cm when fully grown, it is a wonderful addition to rainforest regeneration plantings. It is well adapted to dry periods and does like good drainage in wet times.

Extra Information

Australia is home to some of the most magnificent and unique rainforest plants in the world. A most versatile group of plants, they have ornamental, environmental and commercial value and can be used to create attractive backyard habitats, as indoor specimen plants, small-scale reforestation projects or large commercial ventures.

Subtropical rainforest is found in high rainfall areas in rich volcanic soil. The forests contain 10 to 60 species of trees, the more common ones being the booyongs, yellow carrabeen, rosewood, figs and lillypillies.
