This tree belongs to the Aralia family and is native to New Zealand. Young plants have a very curious look to them, producing a thin, solitary stem and long and narrow, downward pointing, strongly toothed leaves that look like a double-edged saw blade.
Once a few meters tall, the stem begins to branch and the leaves take on a more normal, much shorter appearance. It is thought that this growth habit protected the plant against the now extinct moa, a giant flightless and herbivorous bird.
P. ferox is similar to P. crassifolius but stays much smaller.
