South Esk Pine

Established: 1998
Area: 6.8 ha
Location: 175km north east of Hobart

South Esk Pine trees on the banks of the Apsley River, just north of Freycinet National Park, typically rely on fire to release seeds. But if fires are too hot or too frequent, they can't survive. This reserve is among the largest stands of this sub-species left in the world.
