About 10 trees have grown totally unassisted in old cultivation at Janahn since 2006. These trees now 4 m tall. Experiment: Currently planting next to Bunya Pine (300mm apart) within 2-3 years Gumbi will be shading Bunya both may be self sufficient, stock will avoid both species.

Predators: Possible that something will eat a small seedling. When sheep were re-introduced to Janahn 2008 they seemed to ignore Gumbi in the field that was 1 metre tall.
