Rare, 90-million-year-old tree for sale
September 20, 2006
National Geographic sees the sales as an opportunity to conserve and propagate the species, which was believed to be extinct until a small grove of trees was discovered in Australia's Blue Mountains in 1994. The tree is believed to have existed since the time of dinosaurs. A portion of the proceed from sales of the $99.95 tree will go towards conservation efforts of the species.
National Geographic says the species is "easy to grow either an indoor plant or a garden plant in partial shade or full sun" and is "capable of surviving a broad range of temperatures, from 23 degrees F to 113 degrees F."
The will will be available starting in October 2006 at www.nationalgeographic.com/Wollemipine
