I just got done adding water effect to these 2 trees and posted them on my website. How ironic. This ought to be a really nice thread. I love trees, and have tons of pictures of them. I will be adding a couple every now and again.

The Wollemi Pine
..............................
The Wollemi Pine is one of the world’s oldest and rarest trees. It was discovered just 10 years ago by a bushwalker in a national park only 200km from Sydney, Australia’s biggest city.
A majestic conifer with attractive, unusual dark green foliage and bubbly bark, the Wollemi Pine can grow up to 40 metres high in the wild with a trunk diameter of over one metre.
The Pines can survive temperatures from 23-133°F (-5 to 45°C) and are expected to withstand even cooler temperatures. They are also responding well to low light indoor environments.

The Huon pine is Australia’s oldest living tree and is one of the oldest living organisms on earth.
Individuals have been known to reach an age of 3,000 years. Fossil records from a tree found
in a boggy area in the south west of Tasmania were dated at 3,462 years! (Carder A., 1995). Only
the bristle-cone pine of North America exceeds it in age.

PAPERBARK THORN
One of the typical flat-topped or umbrella-shaped acacias found in South Africa. The tree can reach up to 9m in height with a spread of about 15m. The most distinctive feature of this tree is the “corky” yellowish-brown bark which flakes in papery pieces.

Alerce Tree (Fitzroya cupressoides) native to the Andes mountains of southern Chile and adjoining Argentina, where it is an important member of the Valdivian temperate rain forests.
A very large evergreen tree, the largest tree species in South America, growing to 40-60 m tall and up to 5 m trunk diameter.
In 1993 a specimen from Chile was dated as 3622 years old. This gives it the third-greatest fully verified age recorded for any living tree, after the Great Basin Bristlecone Pine and the as yet unnamed 9,550 year old spruce tree discovered in Sweden in 2008.

Jarrah Tree. Eucalyptus marginata is one of the most common species of Eucalyptus tree in southwest of Western Australia. The tree and the wood are usually referred to by the Aboriginal name Jarrah. Because of the similar appearance of worked jarrah timber to the Honduras mahogany tree, jarrah was once called Swan River mahogany after the river system that runs through Perth.
