Revolution Green and Revolution Gold are common names for the Black Tea Trees (Melaleuca bracteata) that you will find in just about every street in Brisbane. For that reason a tree lopping website has to make mention of them.
Melaleuca bracteata are variable in size and appearance. Most Brisbane specimens are those that have been bred by nurseries. They are quite similar having been bred commercially.
Both Revolution Green and Revolution Gold trees have rough, dark bark. The difference is in the hue of their leaves. They can grow up to 15 metres high.Their leaves are fine which can cause problems in gutters and pools.
They are a good choice to plant in place of noxious species that have to be removed. They are suitable for open areas where they won’t grow over gutters. Native birds are attracted to their white flowers in season.
They cause few problems except for keeping their leaves away from causing trouble and needing trimming back when they flourish too much. Removal is also simple. Stump grinding is not expensive, when required, as the stump is rarely large.
