Galah damage/pruning most likely cause of narrow crown; xxtensive butt rot to 95% of root flare circumference.
Extremely slow-growing, this is the tallest known example in cultivation in Victoria. Flowering normally causes the stem to branch resulting in a highly branched tree. However this specimen is unusual for its narrow crown and tall trunk. The dragon tree’s natural range is in dry forests and inaccessible coastal cliffs from 100 - 600 m altitude. A native of the Canary Islands listed on the World Rare and Threatened Species List
