Nis forNorfolk Island Pine
Scientific name: araucaria heterophylla
Norfolk Island pine trees are a very distinctive type of tree originally only found on Norfolk Island. They grow very well on the coast. They have interesting compound leaves that make long, round straps made up of tiny leaves that look like a scaly snake. The adult trees are symmetrical and are often planted in a line along roadsides. They are not a true pine tree, and will not tolerate cold climates the same way pine trees do.
