We are so pleased to have this Wollemi Pine tree on campus and report that it is thriving.

The Wollemi Pine, as it is known, was thought to only exist in fossil records until it was rediscovered in Wollemi National Park, New South Wales, Australia in 1994.

Still listed as a critically endangered species, it is not a Pine but more closely related to the Araucaria species such as the Monkey Puzzle tree.
