Hi guys,

Can anyone help me to identify the tall, fern-like (I think!) plant with tiered fronds in the foreground of this image (right-hand side)?

Many thanks!

Possibly a Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla)

I also agree, definitely a Norfolk Island Pine.

It's a nice one. I had one when we lived in the Marshall Islands, but had to leave it when we moved back home.

I gave a small Norfolk Island Pine to a neighbor once who planted it in her yard where it got huge; the next year I sat a small potted tree in a weedy area behind our shed at the back corner of our property and forgot about it ... it took root beneath the pot and grew really big, towering above the shed.
