What is this houseplant/tree?

Asked March 13, 2013, 9:52 PM EDT

This spindly potted plant/tree lives in our building's hallway. It receives little light and I haven't seen it grow appreciably in my 7+ years here. We've all started wondering what it's called. Do you know?

It appears to be a Norfolk Island pine. It is often sold as an indoor houseplant around the holiday season. This one looks very neglected. Here is some information on the links below and you may be interested enough to adopt it and/or help it survive. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/ptlk/1321.html http://mrec.ifas.ufl.edu/foliage/folnotes/norfolk.htm I hope someone helps this plant!
