Thank you Berend. These hoop pine are very significant, being particularly tall and old. I suspect that they have survived the old eras of timbergetting and burning by pastoralists because of their location in the gorge.

They are part of what is locally known as the Primeval Forest, which contains towering hoop pines, a few bunya pines and an understory of rainforest species. Epiphytes abound there.

All the best,

Ian
