Description:

Botanic Gardens, Sydney. Tree about 8 m high, of roughly conical habit. It has been here as long as I can recall (about 45 years) but was smaller when I first knew it. See adjacent shot of trunk.Visible here are the pollen cones (brown) and young seed cones (pale pinkish-grey), presumably at a stage following soon after pollination, as pollen appears already to have been shed by the pollen cones.
