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. http://www.wollemipine.com/aboutwp.php

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.
