Hi all. Anyone know much at all about the species above? We’re looking to place a tree in the garden, but it will be within the canopy (tips) of a large oak. I’ve heard these do well in shady spots but is approach to planting one a bit extreme? It will receive sunlight ‘above’ fence throughout the morning but will only have some dappled light in the afternoon evening. Any help very welcome! Best, Steve
They are fast growing trees
This seems a very odd choice to think of planting any Eucalyptus within the root area of another large tree... an Oak.The roots reach out just as far as the leaves.
Please re think.
Many plants struggle under the shade /dryness of an oak.
No easy answer.
Acers would cope and look super but would not give you the privacy.
Other trees would not grow quickly enough for you.
Your best bet is to ask that the oak is never trimmed.
In time it will block the view behind it, far better than anything you plant.
