    Plant Description:
    Toona ciliata, also known as the red cedar or Australian red cedar, is a large evergreen tree that is native to eastern Australia and Papua New Guinea. It is a member of the mahogany family (Meliaceae) and can grow up to 60 meters tall. The tree has a straight trunk and a dense, round crown of foliage. The leaves are pinnate and have a dark green color. The tree produces small, greenish-white flowers that are followed by red fruits. The wood of the tree is very durable and is used for construction, furniture, and flooring. In Australia, it also used to be used as a source of tanning extract, and also traditional uses by indigenous people such as medicine, tools and shelter.
    Growing tips:

    Toona ciliata is a relatively easy plant to care for and can adapt to a variety of soil types and climates. However, it prefers a warm and humid environment and well-drained soil. Here are some tips on how to care for this tree:

    • Watering: The tree prefers evenly moist soil, but is drought tolerant once established. In dry weather it's important to water the tree regularly to keep the soil moist.

    • Light: The tree prefers full sun to partial shade.

    • Fertilizing: The tree does not require regular fertilization, but it can benefit from an annual application of a balanced fertilizer in the spring.

    • Pruning: Prune to shape the tree or to remove damaged or diseased branches.

    • Pests: Toona ciliata is generally pest-free.

    • Propagation: It can be propagated from seed or by taking semi-hardwood cuttings.

    Overall, this tree is a hardy and resilient species that will thrive with a bit of basic care. Keep in mind if you are planning to grow it in colder climates it might not be the best option since its natural habitat is the subtropical climate zone of eastern Australia and Papua New Guinea.
