This tree has a variety of trunks that grow from the roots of one tree and stretch out in different directions along the track as the moss partially covers some of the bark.
Moss flourishes in the rainforest of Egmont National Park in New Zealand due to the dampness of the area along with various other types of flora. The greenery along the Kapuni Loop Track is fascinating when you stop and look at the way these plants grow.
