The Wollemi pine (Wollemia nobilis W. G. Jones, K. Hill & J. M. Allen (Jones et al. 1995) is a critically endangered species included in the IUCN Red List (Status CR) (Thomas 2011). At the present W. nobilis is restricted to one population scattered across four sites in the Wollemi National Park, Australia (Jones et al. 1995; Benson & Allen 2007; Zimmer et al. 2014). A commercialization strategy has been developed by the Wollemi Pine Recovery Plan to manage the release of the plants into cultivation (DEC 2006; Trueman et al. 2007). Today plants of W. nobilis grow in the Botanical Garden of Rome (Gratani 2017).
