The Dacrydium cupressinum tree!

A Dacrydium cupressinum tree, commonly known as a Rimu Tree is a unique tree endemic to the lush forests of New Zealand. This tall tree can grow up to 50m or 165ft which is incredible compared to other New Zealand's native trees. Young rimu trees have bright olive-green weeping branches but as it matures this changes into drooping branches. Rimu trees can also live up to an astounding amount of around 500 to 600 years which makes it really old and ancient.

The photo of the Rimu tree shows its maturity through its drooping branches.

WALHT: Take a photo and research about it to describe the image.
