Don't Walk with Eyes Wide Shut

Who’s Afraid of Bunya Nut?
How large the Bunya Pine Cones can grow
I wrote a recent post about listening to a 'Mysterious Universe' podcast about fractals and nature walks -
Was Pollock Just a Pineapplehead?
A pineapplehead with a third eye?!
17.11 – MU Podcast
At the around the 23 minute of the podcast pine trees are mentioned, and one of the guys says that we don't have pine trees in Australia and the other guy says yes we do, but then agrees that you don't see them much when on walks.
I don't know about the area of Australia they live in, but there are lots of pine trees around the place in Australia, in fact the commercially grown forests are mostly pine trees.
"Australia's industrial plantations comprise both softwood species (predominantly radiata pine, Pinus radiata) and hardwood species (most commonly blue gum, Eucalyptus globulus)
Their primary purpose is commercial wood production, and they produce most of the volume of logs harvested annually in Australia."

Little Yabba circuit—1.5km return (allow 45mins) Grade 3
"Wade across Little Yabba Creek to explore hoop pine plantation and riparian rainforest. 
This is a good birdwatching area."
Personally, I like eucalyptus trees just as much as pine trees for forest scents.
And Australia has some really ancient and huge pine trees -
"The bunya pine is the last surviving species of the Section Bunya of the genus Araucaria.
This section was diverse and widespread during the Mesozoic with some species having cone morphology similar to A. bidwillii, which appeared during the Jurassic. Fossils of Section Bunya are found in South America and Europe."
Authentic Creations and the Bunya Tree
These Bunya pines were planted in 1890, and then the house built in 1903
And I saw this story the other day in the news about a 170 year old Bunya pine in Tasmania that was chopped down to stop pine cones falling on cars parked under it -

So remember when you are out walking to keep those eyes wide open...and maybe those nostrils, as well.
