Image of Wollemi Pine

Description:

Botanic Gardens, Sydney.Close-up of trunk of one of the oldest of the Wollemi Pines planted out in the Sydney Gardens, probably from the earliest propagations following its discovery in 1994. Already the characteristic bark texture has developed, likened by some to Coco Pops. I suspect the bumps are a kind of resin-blister, as found in various conifers, as they bleed resin copiously with the slightest wound. The white stuff you can see is dried resin.
