Acacia salicina

Cooba Wattle

A fast-growing shade tree with dense canopy, weeping green foliage, and pale yellow globular flowers. Important as a ‘pioneer species’ in regenerative projects, the species hosts nitrogen-fixing organisms, provides shelter for slower-growing plants, creates abundant leaf-litter that breaks down into topsoil, and provides ready shelter and seed for birds and other animals. Grows to 15 metres tall and tolerates a variety of soils.
