Well, us Aussies have not heard much either (at least, this one
hasn't). The discovery did make the TV news hwere they showed some
brief glimpses of the trees. The do look very different from your
normal pine - instead of needles it looked like it had thick
spathulate leaves which reminded me of cycads more than anything. The
leaves covered the branches much like a Norfolk Island pine. The
report said that some seeds had been taken for cultivation and that
the seeds may be available to the public later. It was all very
vague, I suppose we will have to wait for a science magazine program
to get more details.
