Photo: Large Kauri Tree Trounson Kauri Park Northland New Zealand

A large Kauri Tree that is about 1,200 years old towers above the forest floor of the Trounson Kauri Park, in Northland on the North Island of New Zealand. The height to the first branch is 7.6 metres and the diameter is about 3.5 metres.

This large Kauri Tree is about 1,200 years old and is so tall that the distance even to the first branch is 7.6 metres, and its diameter measures 3.5 metres. This tree can be found along the Bush Walk in Trounson Kauri Park, in Northland, on the North Island of New Zealand. These trees are a sight to see, because they can only be found above the 38 degree line, in the northern district of New Zealand's North Island. This tree is not the largest, but is the tallest tree in the country.

... These trees have a very unique ability to adapt very well to their surroundings, so they thrive in a forest that is composed of much younger species of trees. They can do this because they take nutrition from the trees around them. However, due to their age, these trees are always the shining star of any forest of which they are a part.

Kauri trees were once used in the ship building industry as well as for house construction however today in some areas it is unlawful to cut a Kauri Tree down which is over 3 metres high.
