The Mast Tree, or Polyalthia longifolia ‘Pendula,’ originated in the lowland rainforests of India and Sri Lanka and is also known as False Ashoka, Asoka, Buddha Tree, Indian Mast Tree, and Indian Fir Tree.
In British India (1612-1947), the Mast Tree was popular for its resemblance to the Mediterranean Cypress and because its tall, stick-straight trunk was ideal for building ship masts. Mast Trees were eventually introduced into Hawaii in 1921 and Florida in 1976.
The beautiful evergreen tree grows in a somewhat narrow, columnar shape to 30 to 45 feet in height and 4 to 5 feet in width at maturity. It is covered from top to bottom with graceful, glossy dark green pendulous leaves on drooping branches.
