  • Tintoela: Norfolk Island's Luxury Retreat "Come Feel Her Enchantment"

    Tintoela, which means “sweetheart” in the local language, is the Island’s longest running luxury accommodation and continues to be the most sought after. A perfect 5 star TripAdvisor rating hints at the delights that await, though no words or photos can ever do justice to the sweeping ocean views that greet visitors upon arrival at each of the retreat’s 3 luxury accommodations. The owners recently hired award winning Canadian videographers Pure Souls to film the spectacular 3.5 acre landscaped property and, along with wonderful footage by Norfolk's own Stuck On A Rock, is one of the best videos of Norfolk to date.

Plant ID: Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla)

Genus: Araucaria Species: heterophylla Family: ARAUCARIACEAE Common name: Norfolk Island Pine Plant type: Evergreen conifer Origin: Norfolk Islands It can be difficult to distinguish between some Araucaria, but there are key characteristics to look for: some species are darker than others; some leaves grow throughout the branch while other species grow leaves only at the end of branches; shape/curve and direction of leaf growth can vary, and flower size varies a bit too; trunk shedding varies, and the fruit (cone)have noticeable differences in different species. The tree was introduced to European recognition by Captain James Cook who took note of the tree when he landed on the island during his voyages to the South Pacific. Norfolk Island is a neighbouring island to Australia, and the tree is a beloved national symbol of the island. Habit/Form: One of my favourite Genus of trees (although I love them all). This species can give you a classic pine tree shape but doesn't always stay completely uniform/symmetrical. It is in a pyramidal/triangular form so it starts broad and becomes narrow at the top. Generally a slow grower that can reach heights of 60m. In city environments expect this tree to live around 100 years (Keep in mind that the average lifespan of most city trees is decreasing). Main branches will radiate from the trunk rotate and can have a noticeable spacing between each other (so they are not really tightly layered branches). The trunk is a long, straight vertical, cylindrical, classically a bit wider at the base, with dark scaly bark between brown and black coloured giving it a dirty grey or ashy black appearance with a scaly lighter tone so that the bark is not completely black or solid dark. The trunk can be consistently bumpy and spotted and is much more a roughed-smooth bark rather than a scaly-fibrous bark. The trunk can usually have scars, markings, and former branch areas/wound sealing. Any trunk peeling will be in thin flakes. Branchlets of leaves and flowers that fall to the ground, die and dry out, are quite noticeable (and can be quite colourful). They remind me of multi-brown coloured snakes/snake scales. Norfolk Island Pine thrives along the coast, very salt tolerant, can handle poor sandy soils, but are known to be frost tender and suffer in cold climates. Leaves: Once you get familiar with its leaves you will easily distinguish it from other genus of trees. The leaves are like little plump curved claws (awl-like), soft textured, and they spirally arrange very tightly packed between each other forming a long branchlet with fairly even diameter. These branchlets will grow throughout the main branch from the base of the branch to the tip (fish bone style). Generally the leaves are a darkish green but young leaves can be a lighter green. There may even be a yellowish-green colouring. The lighter tones mixed with darker green can give the appearance of being highlighted. Flowers: Similarly arranged like the leaves, narrow cylindrical catkin, a bit more of a spiky-weave together, greenish-yellow. Fruit: A green globose or ovoid cone of incurved scales containing brown papery seeds. Can take up to 20 years before this tree produces fruit. When hanging, the fruit would have a height of about 10cm (from top to bottom of cone) and a 12cm diameter. In this video, the last photograph of the Norfolk Island Pine tree fruit (seed cones) was taken by: tree-species.
