A native to the far north of America, this tree is not one for the tropics and it will do best in the cooler climates of Australia. A small to medium sized tree, this species has needle like leaves to 3cm as well as flaking pinkish bark and small bright red cones which turn to brown when ripe.

Propagation

Whilst this tree will grow well in most soil types, in the wild it is pioneering tree which often prefers wetlands and bogs. As a result, it is not especially drought tolerant. However, many people say that it can be trained to manage on less water and as a bonsai this helps reduce leaf size.
