Wattle trees love to grow in the rich Australian soil. It has, in fact, about 160 different native species of wattle can be found in the country. While the large trees cause fewer problems, the shrub type wattles like the golden wattle, are that of the weedy variety and can be a nuisance if left unattended. They can grow and spread so fast uncontrollably. Proper maintenance and regular wattle tree removal should be conducted on a regular basis.
Nevertheless, having some shrubs and trees of wattles around your Sydney property can still be fun. They provide a lot of gorgeous colour combinations, provide shade and contour to gardens, parks, and even commercial properties.
The wattle plays an important role in maintaining the equilibrium of our ecosystem. Thus, it is imperative to know more about this tree, its uses, and how to maintain it. If the need arises, we have provided some information for wattle tree removal as well.
What is the Wattle Tree
Wattles (Acacia) are among the native shrubs and trees typically found in Australia. It belongs to the legume family, Fabaceae, and has a number of varieties and subspecies. Wattles are among the best known native plant species in the region. When you talk about plants that can be found flourishing and thriving during every season in Australia, wattles should be at the top of the list.
Taking care of wattles can be quite challenging due to their large number of varieties. We can only generalise the tips that we can provide and instead, focus on the Golden wattle. The latter is the most abundant and widely distributed amongst all the wattle groups. They are popularly grown as ornamental plants due to their attractive, vibrant, and fragrant flowers.
The early residents of Australia had used different parts of the wattle for a wide range of purposes. The wattle has actually been part of our ancestors’ daily lives. The seeds and roots can be used as food. The gum it produces is used as medicine while the ashes of the wattle are reported to be used as a narcotic. The wood of the tree has been used to craft shelter, weapons, and fishing rods.
Presently, the wattle family has still a handful of uses as its parts are still used to treat leather (tannin). The gum in its sap is still used as a food emulsifier, as a binder in ceramic manufacturing, in lithographic processes, and in the creation of fireworks.

Wattle Tree Pruning & Trimming Sydney
Pruning is a method used in horticulture for the purpose of changing the growth and appearance of a tree. More importantly, the method is used to ensure the tree grows healthy and diseases, malformations, and similar problems can be prevented. Arborists use different methods in pruning and they greatly depend upon the age of the wattle tree.
Wattle trees typically don’t require regular pruning and trimming. However, during the early stages of the tree’s life, pruning is important to provide vigour and keep the tree healthy. We also recommend trimming and pruning your wattle trees after they are done flowering.
