Wollemi Pine, Wollemia nobilis

This species of tree was previously only known from fossil records dating back to 90 million years. It had been presumed extinct for 60 million years until a small grove was discovered in a remote section of Wollemi National Park in New South Wales in 1994. A propagation programme has made specimens available to botanical gardens throughout the world.
