Norfolk Pine (Cook Pine)

Norfolk Pine (Cook Pine)

The first European to have discovered Norfolk Island Pine was captain James Cook in 1774 on his voyage to the South Pacific in the HMS Resolution. 

The timber was used for sailing ship masts and later used for wood turning together with similar Cook Pine. It is extensively used in Hawaii. 

I recently received a shipment of 20,000 pounds of this wood from Kauai. 

I discovered the Norfolk Island Pine in 1975 when I lived on Hanalei Bay, Kauai for a year. I and my family have been visiting the beautiful island of Kauai often ever since. I love the beauty and the colors and the dramatic  ruggedness  of the wood

Which reminds me of the Napali coast.
