New Zealand kauri trees in the Waipoua Forest in Wekaweka

Here 2 trees are described in the Waipoua Forest in Wekaweka (North Island).

Waipoua Forest preserves some of the best examples of kauri forest remaining in New Zealand. It is notable for having two of the largest living kauri trees, Tane Mahuta and Te Matua Ngahere. The forest was declared a sanctuary in 1952.

The Waipoua, Warawara and Puketi Forests together contain about three quarters of New Zealand's remaining mature kauri trees. The Waipoua forest holds the largest remaining stand of these trees.
