Dammar Pine is an evergreen coniferous tree native to Australia. After being introduced to Hong Kong, the tree has been growing well here.
Dammar Pine is a rare species in Hong Kong. It has a reddish-brown trunk which is smooth and straight. The scaly bark, yellow brown to grey brown in colour, flakes off easily. Possessing a dense, conical crown, the strong yet graceful evergreen tree is ideal for planting at entrances in pairs, as a solitary plant in courtyards or in rows in front of memorial buildings. It is also suitable for growing in groups or scatteringly on lawns and slopes.
This century-old tree is about 24 m tall with a crown spread of about 14 m and a DBH of around 782 mm.
