If you are thinking of planting them, position them well away from those areas and even be thoughtful when planting near a lawn unless you are happy for your lawn mower to chew them up.
Australia has more than 850 species of Acacia, ranging from ground covers and shrubs to giant trees. They can cause sneezing and allergies so we prefer not to cut the branches to display inside the house, instead, leave them to display their natural beauty fully intact.
Be careful when parking under a Eucalypt species as most of them drop branches without much warning and are often the first to be blown over in a storm due to the shallow root structure.
The native birds thoroughly enjoy the nectar they produce and the hardy Banksias also give them shelter from predators. One of our local artists, Celia Rosser is famous for her drawings of Banksias and even had one officially named after her.
