Norfolk pine was brought to the islands by Captain Cook, as he planted Norfolk Pine around the Pacific. Cook thought that by planting areas of Norfolk Pine, which grows straight and fast, replacement mast-building material would be available if it were needed in the future. Though Norfolk Pine is too soft for masts and Captain Cook’s need didn’t materialize, the trees remain. The red knots are usually areas of branch growth. Norfolk pine is a fine material for turned wood items such as this hurricane lamp.
