Description of the plant

New Caledonian pine - Cook pine

Araucaria columnaris

Without doubt the most beautiful Araucaria!

Its columnar shape with irregular inter-storeys is breathtaking! The British explorer James Cook was also greatly impressed when he saw from his boat the famous "Isle of Pines" covered with these Araucarias, he hesitated between plants or stone columns! It was nicknamed "island closest to paradise", the Araucarias are certainly there for something…!

In New Caledonia, it is planted in sacred places and around the chief's house, it demarcates the places where people dance. Its resin is used in the manufacture of varnish, its wood in the construction of canoes. A sample was presented at the 1889 World's Fair, for the beauty of its orange-colored knots.

It is used as a Christmas tree, and its beautiful vertical column is said to lean towards the equator ... It's up to you to check!

Also known as: Coral reef araucaria, Cook pine, New Caledonia pine, Cook araucaria, or Columnar araucaria,commonly known as the Christmas tree.
