Hoop Pine (Araucaria Cunninghamii) is a native Australian species found in Queensland and New South Wales. This magnificent specimen of a tree can grow up to 60 meters in height and can live for hundreds of years.
Its timber is popular for general construction purposes, flooring, joinery, shelving and cupboards, furniture, and plywood. When treated with preservatives it is suitable for outdoor use such as fencing, pergolas, landscaping, retaining walls, and playground equipment.
As Hoop Pine is a slow-growing tree, you can maintain the shape of the tree by regular pruning. Also, ensure that you prune any visible deadwood and any diseased and crossing branches. The Hoop Pine is often used as a Christmas Tree.
