Phyllocladus trichomanoides


Common name: Tanekaha Celery Pine


Tanekaha Celery Pine is a native coniferous medium-size forest growing tree. It is an attractive native tree with a conical shape, often found growing naturally with the New Zealand Kauri and commonly grown in the North Island and in the Marlborough/Nelson area. Its common name ‘Celery Pine’ comes from the celery-like foliage of this graceful tree. The Maori made fairly extensive use of Tanekaha, as it is one of the strongest and most flexible native softwoods. Our photos show the very pretty miniature fruits that appear in spring/summer.
