The Casuarinas are a genus of jointed leafless trees which have a very distinct and peculiar effect in any landscape, their long, drooping, feather-like habit being quite different from that of any other tree. They reach a height of from sixty to eighty feet, are evergreen, grow in any soil, stand exposure well and should be planted more commonly than they are.

Propagate by cuttings put into a cold frame in the Fall and potted off in Spring or as soon as they are well-rooted; also by seeds sown in Spring. Cover the seeds to the depth of one-eighth of an inch.
