Not really a shade tree, but you can use Many acacias, casuarina she oaks-Awesome nitrogen fixers, the wattyls are great for bees and pollinators. The acaias are a short lived tree of about 7years but great as a support species when they are done just cut them down and let them mulch, Casurinas are good food for livestock. If you have a boggy area malaleucas as well

Thanks phskee,
The down side of casuarinas is that nothing grows under or near them. The tannin in the needles deters anything else.
We have about 400 small trees and tube stock, ranging from a few inches high to a few feet. The latest addition being Gingko Biloba, being a great shade tree...once it's established.
We're trying to source /steal/ borrow a good post hole digger attachment for a tractor's PTO/ 3PL to assist with the bigger holes. I've already wrecked a good Stihl version.
Hopefully the neighbour with the tractor and attachment is a drinker...even if I have to buy Tooheys !

Not all tools are usefull
Nappies and politicians should be changed regularly for the same reason.

Would I stoop that low?....the property is in NSW.
Around these parts, it's tooheys, tooths, Fosters or VB.....sometimes they even drink beer. With Origin coming up, you don't poke the tiger if you want favours. ::)

Holes were dug today...Tooheys Old did the job.  ::)
We'll have all hands on deck this weekend filling those holes now....

Of course you have to make out that you follow the Blues, but being so close to the border, there's more than a few closet maroons around.... ;D
