  1. wollemi pine

    The Wollemi Pine, scientifically known as Wollemia nobilis, is a rare and ancient tree species that belongs to the Araucariaceae family. It was believed to be extinct and was only known through fossil records until it was discovered in 1994 in the Wollemi National Park in Australia. It is often referred to as a "living fossil" due to its existence dating back 200 million years. The Wollemi Pine can grow up to 40 meters tall and has distinctive dark green foliage and a unique bark that is bubbly or knobbly in appearance. Despite its discovery location, it has proven to adapt to a wide range of climates and is now grown all around the world for both conservation and ornamental purposes.
