But the productions which give the greatest importance to Norfolk Island are the pines and the flax plant, the former rising to a sizer and perfection unknown in other places, and promising the most valuable supply of masts and spars for our navy in the East Indies ; the latter not less estimable for the purposes of making sail cloth, cordage, and even the finest manufactures ; growing in great plenty, and with such luxuriance as to attain the height of eight feet [see footnote concerning Phormium - some roots have lately been sent to England]. The fern tree is found also of a great height for its species, measuring from seventy to eighty feet. The Voyage of Governor Phillip to Botany Bay, 1790, p. 108
