5.0 out of 5 stars Tasmania's famous timber August 24, 2008
The Huon pine is a conifer and is endemic toTasmania, meaning it grows naturally in Tasmania and nowhere else. Scientifically, the Huon pine is known as Lagarostrobos franklinii (formerlyDacrydium franklinii) and is the only member of the genus Lagarostrobos. Related species from the family Podocarpaceae, originating from the ancient supercontinent Gondwana are found in Chile,Malaysia and New Zealand. The Huon pine is Australia's oldest living tree and is one of the oldest living organisms on earth. Individuals have been known to reach an age of 3,000 years. Fossil records from a tree found in a boggy area in the south west of Tasmania were dated at 3,462 years!(Carder A., 1995). Only the bristle-cone pine of North America exceeds it in age.
