Soft Tree Fern (Dicksonia Antarctica), As A Form Of Fern Plant

The Soft Tree Fern is a species of evergreen tree fern native to eastern Australia, ranging from south-east Queensland, coastal New South Wales and Victoria to Tasmania. These ferns can grow to 15 m (49 ft) in height, but more typically grow to about 4.5-5 m (15-16 ft), and consist of an erect rhizome forming a trunk. They are very hairy at the base of the stipe (trunk). The large, dark green, roughly-textured fronds spread in a canopy of 2-6 m (6 ft 7 in - 19 ft 8 in) in diameter. [from wikipedia]
