Queensland kauri is a tall tree with an upright crown.
In its native land, this majestic tree grows 150 feet tall. And some trees are estimated to be 300 years old. A useful tree, it was overharvested until girth restrictions were put in place. Today, it is not threatened. In fact, it’s the most abundant tree in North Queensland. It is cultivated as a grand specimen in botanical gardens around the world. Spirally arranged branches give this conifer a full, robust crown.
