when you puchase this tree you receive a certificate of authenticity as it comes under a conservation collection as it has survived since the dinosaurs and was only discovered in 1994 in australia and in the winter it grows polar caps on the end of the branches to protect itself from frosts etc and they just look like small icicles
i puchased it on the anniversary of the death of my husband as he loved different pine trees and thought this was perfect

thanks for telling me that I found it very intresting, also what a lovely thing to buy in memory of your husband, I do hope it keeps growing and stays healthy for you.
