Moreton Bay Pine leaves and flowersThe Moreton Bay Pine or Hoop Pine is an evergreen native to coastal rainforests from Cape York to northern New South Wales. It is a slow growing tree which can grow up to 60 metres tall and live up to 450 years. 

Most natural stands of Moreton Bay Pines have been cut down, so they are now widely planted for forestry purposes. Its timber is popular for indoor work and joinery.
