You're lucky that all those trees grow very well in the UK

I haven't got any photos of my favourite trees, which are mostly natives.

I've got a couple of photos from a few days ago, of some trees I do quite like though. First is the Bunya Bunya pine -Araucaria bidwillii.

The second is Norfolk pine -Araucaria hetrophylla a standard seaside tree.

You really are a winter lover aren't you.
Please come over here for the winter and have your fill.

Palms are my favourite. As for least favourite, I haven't come across any particular species that pisses me off.

I've seen them in Dunedin, but can't remember them in Invercargill. They are more common further north.

Joe, is this the tree you posted before that flowers bright yellow in early spring in NZ?

No, it does look like an Acacia though. Wattles (acacias) here grow up 10-15 ft (in the first year or so) before they branch out.

According to the person that posted the photo it is a eucalyptus, and that it blooms in spring and doesn't lose its silvery blue leaves in winter. It is a broadleaf evergreen.
