Why Kauri are so important
Kauri are a cornerstone of the indigenous forest ecosystems of the Upper North Island.
Kauri are one of Aotearoa's unique taonga
Kauri trees are found amongst other native trees throughout the Upper North Island. But kauri dieback is threatening kauri with extinction. There is no cure for kauri dieback, it can be spread by just a pinhead of soil, and you can't tell by looking whether a tree is infected or not. But kauri will be saved – by people like you.
