“Norfolk Island Pine’s tolerance to salt and wind makes it an ideal coastal tree.
It is native to Norfolk Island found in the Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and New Caledonia. It can grow to around 65 meters or 213 feet with straight vertical trunks and symmetrical branches.
It grows in the face of constant onshore winds that can contort most other tree species. Its symmetrical shape is the reason it is also called star pine, triangle tree or living Christmas tree. ”
