KAURI - Kauri forests are among the most ancient in the world. It is the largest (by volume) but not tallest species of tree in New Zealand, standing up to 50m tall in the emergent layer above the forest's main canopy. Kauri have had a large part to play not just in the landscape and early history of Aotearoa, but the important role Kauri has for Māori. Kauri are considered a taonga (natural resource which is highly prized) by many New Zealanders, particularly Māori, who see the health of Kauri as a sign of general wellbeing of the ngahere (forest) and the people - hence the value cannot be understated.

RIMU - Rimu is a very tall canopy tree that is found in forests throughout the North Island and the coastal areas of the South Island. Rimu is a well-known timber tree as well as being used in Rongoa, Māori medicine.
