COOK'S GONDWANA PINE

Similar to its coastal cousin the Norfolk Island Pine, Diggers has chosen the Cook Island Pine for its bushier growth habit and smaller diametre. Its dense foliage, conical shape and distinctive flaky bark set it apart from other forms of pines. Able to grow in most positions, this tree is well worth adding to any garden.

BUNYA PINE

There are few trees as impressive as a fully grown Bunya Pine! Native to the rainforests of Australia, it is extremely tough and grows well in all states. Frost-tolerant, it produces masses of edible seeds in gigantic cones weighing up to 7-10kg.
