Palm Trees – No Roof

The Victorian coastline is home to a wide variety of species of palm trees, so it’s no surprise that Palm trees have grown in numbers over recent years as an iconic part of Melbourne’s natural landscape. A stroll along the waterfront in St Kilda or on the beach in Dandenong Road in Windsor or along the foreshore on St Kilda Road in Ballarat will reveal that some palm trees have already been established and will survive for many years to come.

Trees from local nurseries are acclimatized to Melbourne’s hot and humid weather and therefore have a better chance of surviving and growing in the city than those imported from warmer countries. This explains why so many Palm trees are planted in and around the CBD and other main areas of the city.

Trees growing in this area are very popular with locals and tourists alike. They provide shade from the blazing sun and a peaceful oasis of green in a sometimes overheated city. While they provide these benefits for the public, there are some concerns about the impact they are having on the environment. Some environmental groups claim that planting Palm trees on private property and then using them to provide shade can be illegal.

One group, the Green Tree Project, have launched a campaign called “Palm Trees – No Roof”, claiming that Palm trees are not a good choice for providing shade and other benefits in an urban setting. The group wants Melbourne’s state and federal governments to make an example by planting more trees on public land such as in parks and in gardens without the use of the roof.

Victoria has recently begun implementing its own tree-planting program, which aims to ensure that it grows the most trees possible within the limited space available in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner. To reduce the impact of planting Palm trees, it has created a National Parks Scheme were all new plantations are carefully evaluated and tested to ensure that they are environmentally friendly.

Palm trees are also growing rapidly in the suburbs of Melbourne, where there is often less demand for parking spaces and other commercial uses. Their compact size makes them ideal for landscaping purposes and in parks. With an average height of only two metres, they are easy to maintain and can easily be installed on the front of buildings and on patios or driveways, providing shade from the sun whilst providing added functionality and comfort.

Because Palm trees can grow quite large, there is a significant demand for their use in schools, hospitals, business parks, and other buildings in cities like Melbourne. Melbourne is a city that grows rapidly and because of the high number of residents. With the high density of people there is often a greater need for larger commercial buildings that need more room to house employees and provide commercial space.

Palm trees are an effective solution to a problem that many cities face. Whether you live in a large city like Melbourne or in a small village or town, Palm trees provide a calming effect on a busy road and can provide shade and additional commercial value.

If your desire is to create a pleasant, relaxing environment then Palm trees are a great option for creating a space that has an outdoor seating area, sofas or tables and is free from the daily hassles and noise of other activities. They are a great alternative to outdoor furniture and are not subject to the elements; they can survive year-round.

The beauty of Palm trees is in their simplicity, there are no wires, poles or cement between the trees and the ground and the look of them provides a sense of peace and tranquillity. Palm trees provide a natural way to cool off and enjoy the sunshine without the worry of damaging them by overtime.

Palm trees are growing fast in Melbourne and the future looks bright with more plantations being planted in parks and gardens all across the country. They provide a natural and beautiful alternative to metal or plastic fences and provide shade and a safer way to enjoy the outdoors in your back yard. Palm trees are a real solution to green living and are also very environmentally friendly as they provide shade from the sun and reduce the amount of energy used in the garden.
