Norfolk Island Pine ...
A young Norfolk Island Pine, latin name Araucaria heterophylla because of the different shape between young and mature trees, is a sign the climate shares some of the features of the Best Climates of the World for most european races .

A mature tree with a height of 40-57 m, disintegrating at maturity to release the nut-like edible seeds... signals one of those climates.
