Tasmanian Ridge

Work began on creating the Tasmanian Ridge above the old fernery in around 1990, and the plantings are developing well. Although rare in its native habitat, Athrotaxis laxifolia is the most widely planted Tasmanian cedar in cultivation and is represented here, as is A. selaginoides. The Tasmanian southern beech (Nothofagus cunninghamii) is also planted in this area on the southern slope of the Massan Arboretum.
