Huon Pine

$39.95$89.95

Lagarostrobos franklinii, or Huon Pine, is a rainforest tree that grows in western and southern Tasmania. It is very fire-sensitive and only grows in fire-free areas. It is slow-growing and may live for over 2000 years. It mainly grows at low-moderate altitudes but occasionally extends into the alpine zone. The Huon pine grows mainly along riverbanks in western and southern Tasmania. Its wood is suitable for furniture, and logging has decreased boat-building distribution.

The Huon Pine is endemic to Tasmania and is the only species in this genus. Ancient specimens reach heights of 40 metres in their natural range, but under garden settings, expect 7 metres in height and a 4 metre spread over 40 years.

Our 140mm stock is a mix of seed-grown and cutting-struck lines from groves south of Hobart. Our 140mm XL range of Huon Pines has provenance dated to 350BC and is maturer and larger than our general line of Huon Pines.
