This evergreen tree has a strong tolerance of both salinity and wet soils, and can improve soil quality by lowering saline in below water tables. Casuarina obesa can also tolerate significant frost. Plant Casuarina obesa in an area of full sun, with free draining soils. Casuarina obesa requires minimal maintenance. Water until established. Casuarina obesa can grow to a height of 15 metres and a width of 8 metres.
