A – Australian tree ferns


There are many different ferns found in Australia. This one is found in the driveway leading up to my place in Tasmania. For some reason the fronds die off quite often. Think this might be because they are used to being in a wet environment while my driveway area is very dry.

The proper name for this fern is Dicksonia antarctica.

The trunk area is where fern fronds have broken off over the years of growth.
