Celery Top Pine
Celery Top Pine is a native conifer found in wet areas in the drier forests of the North East
to the rainforests of the South West of Tasmania. It is able to survive on low nutrient
conditions due to nitrogen fixing bacteria on their roots. It grows from 40 to 85 metres and
is known live for 800 years.
Celery Top Pine is a creamy white colour, over time and sunlight exposure will darken to a
mellow rosy gold. The grain is straight and even with clearly visible growth rings.
The foliage is dark green and leathery, it resembles the leaves of celery but are not
actually leaves. They are cladodes as flattened stems.
