  • Biodiversity Month is held in September each year and aims to promote the importance of protecting, conserving and improving biodiversity both within Australia and across the world. 
This month we’re showcasing some of South Australia’s endangered plants.

Introducing the Mount Compass Oak-bush (Allocasuarina robusta) which is endemic to South Australia where it is restricted to the lower Fleurieu Peninsula and is currently listed as Endangered at both a state and national level

Mt Compass Oak-bush is one of many endangered species we’re protecting on our Bush For Life sites. If you'd like to volunteer with Bush For Life call us on 8406 0500 or email info@treesforlife.org.au. 
Identification: a rigid, erect shrub that grows to 3 metres tall. Branchlets are reddish-brown and grow to 20 cm long. Branchlet segments are 7 to 12 mm long and have rings of 5 to 7 teeth. Cones grow on short stalks or are stalkless. 
Threats: The main threats to Mount Compass Oak-bush are increased fragmentation; vegetation clearing; grazing pressure; road maintenance activities (spraying and vehicle damage); weed invasion; fertiliser or pesticide drift; recreational use of reserves; hydrological changes; and inappropriate fire regimes.

  • Up on Gordon's Hill...
A fire had gone through last summer, but there are signs of survival and regeneration. #bushfire #allocasuarina

  • This incredible #allocasuarina grows at the back of Allard Park. It is a monster. Impossible to fit in the frame of a phone cam. You should hear it sing in the wind, like a choir of beautiful ghosts. I often pass it and wonder when it was planted, by whom and how it came to be so enormous. Has it tapped into an underground stream? What are its stories? #treeoftheday #Wurundjericountry

  • National Tree Day is coming up this Sunday 28 July, so we want to spend the week sharing some of our favourite native tree and plant species and the animals who depend upon them for survival.
.
First up is the Allocasuarina or she-oak as it is commonly known. Allocasuarina are trees endemic to Australia, occurring primarily in the south.
.
Allocasuarina trees are notable for their long, segmented branchlets that function as leaves. Formally termed cladodes, these branchlets somewhat resemble pine needles, although sheoaks are actually flowering plants. These trees are loved and needed by Gilbert's Potooroos, Corangamite Water Skinks, and Glossy Black-Cockatoos to name a few.

  • My Allo/casuarina collection. These Aussie natives are my favourite trees due to their uniqueness. They are drought hardy, tolerant of poor soil and useful as windbreaks. Their needle like foliage aren’t actually needles at all, and if you look at the last picture, the jagged triangles are the true leaves, which forms a microwhirl around the branch! The trees grow as either female or male trees that display small red flowers or orange catkin-like flowers. My trees were either grown from seed or tubestock. If they have enough room their trunks thicken very fast. Most, if not all of these trees, will eventually become bonsai.

  • A tropical climbing yam making its way up an Allocasuarina torulosa. We plant the yams at the base of the casuarinas in our food forest as we don’t pollard these native trees, only the leguminous species. The allocasuarina however, though a nonlegume, is a nitrogen fixing tree too. In legumes and nonlegumes alike, the actual fixation of nitrogen is done by bacteria living inside the roots of the host plant. The plant provides the bacteria with sugars and a variety of minerals, and the bacteria provides the host plant with a usable supply of nitrogen. In the
case of the legumes, the bacterium may be one of several different species of the genus Rhizobium, a rod-shaped bacterium. Though found naturally
in most soils it is available commercially in
most seed catalogs as legume inoculant. In the nonlegumes, such as the casuarina, the bacterium involved is an actinomycete, or filamentous bacterium, in the genus Frankia. Unlike the rhizobia, which exist as discrete cells, the actinomycetes grow in long chains of cells similar to fungal hyphae, but much smaller. The tropical climbing yam (Dioscorea bulbifera), commonly known as the air potato, air yam, bitter yam, cheeky yam and potato yam is a species of true yam in the yam family, Dioscoreaceae. It is native to Africa, Asia and northern Australia being a perennial vine in those regions. However, here in the inland subtropics with a cold winter prone to frost, the vine dies back each winter, taking the energy stored in its vine growth into its root tuber to await spring. At this point the root mass grows and it is ready to harvest, just leave a piece behind to sprout next season. Or leave the whole lot and watch it grow bigger and bigger each season. It will actually begin to stick out of the ground at the base of the tree. #tropicalclimbingyam #dioscoreabulbifera #allocasuarina #allocasuarinatorulosa #frankia #harvestwater #buildsoil #regrowforest #foodforest #growyourownfood #poisonfree #zaytunafarm #permacultureresearchinstitute #permaculturewillfeedtheworld #peaceandfreedomonearth #regenearthproject #gardenersofinstagram #permaculture #veggie #kitchengarden #farmtotable
