Grows throughout Nth and northeastern Sth Islands in lowland, montane and lower subalpine forests, commonly where soil is fertile and well drained. A medium to large tree, growing slowly to 20-25m, sometimes 35m. Noted for longevity and large girth to its trunk (up to 4m). Bark peels off in papery flakes. Sharp dull green needles are stiff and leathery. Often found on regenerating farmland as the spiny needles are not favoured by livestock.
