You don't see many of these around here.  I think part of the problem is they are hard to handle - stiff and sharp needles. I love the look - reminds me of the S. American monkey puzzle tree.

Willis, I love these pines. I never realised you folks also use the Aussie name for them. Moreton Bay is a coastal area north of Brisbane where these trees were said to have been first discovered. These are so hardy and you see them lining the beach areas where they withstand the sun, salt air and winds!Some of them are massive 50+ metres tall.

"I LOVE having my tree up and decorating for Christmas.  Mine goes up the weekend before Thanksgiving, and doesn't come down till the weekend after the 2nd weekend in January.  It's up  now :)"
