Can I plant a Norfolk Island Pine in my yard?

Can I plant a Norfolk Island Pine in my yard?

You can, but it depends on where you are located.  It needs to be planted in a protected location, preferably on the south or east side of your home.  Because this tree can get 60’+ tall in Central Florida, keep it at least 25’ from any structure.  I’ve know many individuals who’ve planted this tree and have been successful, and I’ve also known many who weren’t.  The Norfolk Island Pine is cold sensitive in our area.  Best if planted in areas such as Melbourne and points further south.
