Easy Blackwood Windbreak

We have found a simple way to encourage a winbreak of blackwoods (Acacia melanoxylon).

This acacia readliy suckers when its roots are disturbed.

They have a prolific root system with lots of shallow running roots around 6 or so meters from an established blackwood.

In this picture a line was ripped with a tractor about 3 years earlier and the result is a nice thicket of blackwood sapplings forming a screen.
