Iconic conifer tree endangered in nature, from previous heavy logging & one of the oldest living things on earth many 1000s of years old potentially. Very small scale-like foliage, the branches have arching branches and pendulous branchlets. Older trees can very slowly reach 10-20 metres and rarely 30 metres. Endemic to the high rainfall, cooler rainforest regions of south east , south and western Tasmania ... Individual trees are known to be over 2000 years old and clonal colony’s have been assessed to be up to 10,500 years old.
