The aim of establishing the 'Southern pine' taxa in Queensland was to determine the most suitable species for a commercial forestry plantation program. The area focused on the south-eastern coastal lowlands on soils of low nutritional status, at that time supporting relatively low-grade eucalypt forest. These plantations were to supplement those of the native hoop pine (Araucaria cunninghamii).
