Who says you can’t have an antique in the garden? National Geographic will be offering the Wollemi Pine tree for the first time in the United States. This is far from your ordinary pine, as there are only 100 of these trees in the wild. The Wollemi Pine was thought to have gone extinct over 2 million years ago, until they were recently rediscovered in Australia’s Blue Mountains.


You can own a truly unique piece of foliage, and the best part is that National Geographic is using the proceeds from the sale of these saplings to support National Geographic programs including support of botanical research and studies.

The Wollemi Pine has a distinctive look, tall and slender, often with multiple trunks. Each sapling is approximately 10 inches tall when delivered. The conifer survives quite well in temperatures ranging from 23 – 113 degrees Farenheight.

Remember the next time you need to give a unique house warming present, or if you’re looking to spruce up your own apartment or yard that the Wollemi Pine is an endangered species and by purchasing one you are also helping to support the effort to keep this species from extinction.

Available at www.nationalgeographic.com/wollemipine
Price – $99.95
