Willow Podocarp Podocarpus salignus (Podocarpaceae) (Height to 20m) Sometimes grows as a multi-stemmed bush, but can form a larger tree on a stronger bole with dark orange-brown bark which peels off in strips from mature specimens. Leaves are willow-like, up to 12cm long, with a leathery appearance but a softer, more pliable texture. A native of Chile that yields useful building timber.
