Fertilizer Tree is beautiful permaculture tree all year round with reddish leaves in spring, hazel-green foliage in summer and masses of rustic brown cones and purple catkins hanging all winter. Cones make excellent handicraft material and provide wildlife food...maybe even survival food for humans. Great for stabilizing wet areas and riparian buffers. Fixes nitrogen in wet/dry depleted soils thereby greatly enriching soil fertility. The FT wood is water(rot) resistant so can be used for decoys, wharfs, posts, decks, children's playground slides, etc. This eliminates need for toxic chemicals to protect the wood from rotting. Absolutely best plant species for wet, heavy clay areas where very little else will grow. We planted a row or these Fertilizer trees in a low lying wet field about 20 years ago and now the original plants have spread  (by self seeding) to cover the wet area to form a beautiful functional shelterbelt, wildlife refuge and food forest. Our FT trees have survived very cold winters( -35 to -40 C) and are easy to prune to control size of tree or prevent spreading.

GREAT plant for windbreak, hedge, wildlife shelter or poor soil area.
