Monterey Pine

Pinus radiata D.Don

It is a coniferous evergreen tree that was introduced to Australia in the 1870s. The species is widely regarded as an environmental weed across southeastern and southwestern Australia and the removal of individual plants beyond plantations is encouraged
Locally it is present in plantations for timber but is also found along some road sides where it was used as a wind barrier along pastural edges or fence lines. There are still a couple around the area growing wildly but most have been removed by weed managment groups.
