Southern Sassafras

I was fortunate to have visited the Errinundra National Park for the first time during Easter. One of the highlights was to see Southern Sassafras, (Atherosperma moschatum). Apparently, they have a conical shape because they evolved during a period when snow was more common than current times. 

The tree in the photograph below was multi stemmed. This gave me an opportunity to stand in the fork of the trunks and take the photograph looking up.
