These trees do best in sheltered, humid location. They are tolerant of coastal conditions including salty winds and once established will also tolerate mild frosts. Mature trees bear cone–structure fruits 7–15 mm long X 8–15 mm wide. When ripe the cones numerous valves open to release the dark–coloured winged seeds 7–8 mm long.
