LUCERNE TREES AND THE OZONE LAYER
Hi - I am thinking of growing some Lucerne trees for
my thoroughbred horse as very little grows on my
For 5 years now, I have been recommending these magnificent Trees via my e-books and have warned about the impending Droughts. Now of course, I can say that these Trees may be the Salvation of the Horse Industry and if you take my advice, you will not only save a fortune, but it is like winning in a blackjack online! supplement your feeding regimes, assist the Environment and much more. These Trees feed horses and have a 30 percent Protein Level. They grow in anything and without water. You simply go pull up the babies, do not have to dig a hole but just drive the spade in for a slit and give them a whack with the heel of your boot (at the start of Winter) and then forget about them./ They seed prolifically and you can go pick them in about 3 weeks time here. Bird life and Bees love them, they look great and the flowers smell beautiful. What more would you want. Wind Break did I hear you say? No problems.!! The more they are eaten, the more they hedge up. Grow them on the fence lines like in my photos and the horses will do the rest. I often have a laugh here and sometimes here on the University Graduates who make up our Councils. The Experts who know everything and we wouldn't know a thing. Just look at their Certificates and Books. These Trees here in South Australia come under the Pest Plants and Weeds Bi-Laws and in the past they have almost become Suicidal if you ever mentioned you were going to plant them and were always spraying Roundup[ on the Road Reserves to kill them. Guess what? Get ready for one of the Experts to soon come on TV and give us the magnificent revelation just like having the luck of winning the slots online that these Trees need to be planted to substitute the closed down Rural Hay Producers around Australia.

Tagasaste: Chamaecytisus proliferus: Evergreen tree; fast growing under most conditions, reaches its full potential in three to four years. Long-lived species -expected life of about 50 years. Propagated from seed or from cutting. Mature trees are tolerant of frosts to -10 degrees C. Renowned for soil stabilisation work. Yield about 15 tonnes dry matter per hectare per year on one-third tree cover to two-thirds grass cover; recovers quickly from complete defoliation and heavy grazing. Legumes, producing their own nitrogen - ideal for impoverished soils, but require free-draining soils. Foliage contains about 23% protein (Davies 1982; Davies 1985; Rumball & Cooper 1985). Tagasaste has more productive potential than lucerne (Oates and Clarke 1987). As tagasaste roots more deeply than lucerne, it may have a greater tolerance to drought.
Thanks Tan. Much appreciated. We forgot the Birds, didn't we. The Native Birds abound when they are about. Cheers
