A very large, stately specimen tree that is often seen in historical gardens as it was widely planted on large country estates. Its domed shape is its very distinctive feature but it should be stressed that this tree needs a lot of space and should not be planted within 10 metres of any structures. It needs no regular pruning, however, its arge seed cones are extremely heavy and present a safety hazard in public areas when they fall from the tree so warning sugnage should be used. The nuts are edible and are very tasty when roasted as was done by Aboriginal people through hostory.
