Lagarostrobos franklinii

Lagarostrobos franklinii

Commonly known as the Huon or Macquarie pine, this unique conifer is actually a podocarpus, not a pine, but the name anyway. It is the sole species in the genus Lagarostrobos, which may be related to the genus Dacrydium. 

The wood is highly prized for its golden yellow colour, fine grain, and natural oils that resist rotting. But I'm sure no one will be growing this to harvest the wood. 

The Huon pine is a slow-growing, but long-lived tree; some living specimens of this tree are in excess of 2,000 years old.[6] It grows to 10 to 20 metres (33 to 66 ft) tall in the wild, but will stay under 20 ft in a landscape. The plant can be pruned to keep at a desired size. It is a very attractive tree, with the branches gracefully arching.  The leaves are spirally arranged, very small and scale-like, 1 to 3 mm (0.039 to 0.118 in) long, covering the shoots completely. It is dioecious, with male (pollen) and female (seedcones on separate plants.
