Native New Zealand, New Zealand: 3 reviews and 4 photos

  Kauri Tree
by kiwigal_1

Favorite thing: One of the loveliest things about New Zealand is its unique Flora and Fauna. If you have an afternoon or day to spend in the native New Zealand bush then I would certainly encourage you to do this. You will see all sorts of trees that aren't found anywhere else. The Kauri tree (see the pic) is known as the king of the forest because it stands so tall and mighty. Unfortunately many of these trees were logged in the early settler times so there aren't so many large examples around. You could go and see "Tane Mahuta" in Northland which is on the tourist trail. Native New Zealand trees are now protected so if people have one on their property they cannot remove them without resource consent (which is very hard to get!).
