I live in the pine forest of Texas and have been trying to describe to classes and Forest Service professionals the cones of the Bunya Bunya I saw on a recent trip to Australia. I would love to get my hands on a cone so that I could use it as a visual aid when I go out and talk about other countries. I also wonder if I could grow one here. I have acid, heavy clay soil, and it is pretty humid in this area. Thank you!
