    Check Availability

    A lovely shade tree with lush green foliage and very interesting seed pods. It is quite hardy and can tolerate dry conditions, which makes it a good tree for the urban environment. The Carob tree is slow growing which means that the wood is very strong and hard and it will last in your garden for many years to come. It is therefore a good “legacy” tree that will provide shelter for many generations to come.
