Calling it a conifer forest is perhaps a bit of a stretch. Perhaps even a conifer grove may be going to far, but it is basically a collection of a small number of conifers (plus a few other plants) that take the high ground along the outside of the Portal.

The area was basically constructed in 2019 soon after the portal was constructed. One tree that was originally planted here didn’t make it – Abies concolor ‘Candicans’. Perhaps just as well because when the walls were installed for Gondwana, it would have been in the way.

A couple of the trees in here are previous Christmas trees and there is some space left where the Ironwood and Escallonia are being cut back and the roots removed.

Most of the plants are either naturally small or have a prostrate form. A couple of them were also rescue plants and so do not have great form at the moment. Hopefully they will sort themselves out over time. There is also one pine that we do not know what it is. Isn’t needles are very soft and it is very full. Hopefully it does not turn out to be a gigantic tree!
