Dacrydium guillauminii and Dacrydium x suprinii
A 3 Description
The evergreen tress and shrubs of the genus Dacrydium are dioecious and closely related to the genus Podocarpus.
Both species merely reach maximum heights of 7 m and 5 m respectively, and although the yellowish or reddish wood reveals an attractive structure, the diameters of the trunks do not allow any timber utilization in contrast to other species of Dacrydium.
