The Tasmanian Treefern is probably the most widely known of all tree ferns, being cultivated also in temperate areas of the world because of it’s hardiness. In natural standings, the fronds from the groups of this plants can form a dense canopy, while the fibrous
trunks often hosts epiphytes, including other ferns. Dicksonia antarctica is not only cold-resistant, but also fire-resistant. It is well suited for garden planting, as it re-shoots readily after relocation.
