Price: $3.99
Colliding tectonic plates cause New Zealand to continually rise from the South Pacific. Active oceanic weather systems driven out of the Southern Oceans pound the land. Anchored on the edge of this zone of creation and destruction is a unique tree, the Pohutukawa. Find out how this iconic tree colonised thousands of kilometers of volcanic seamounts across the tropics. Pohutukawa trees range from stunted weather beaten individuals wrapped around rocks to towering forests in water edge jungles. Photographs illustrate the resilience and beauty these forests add to the sub-tropical New Zealand coast. Its flowers heralding summer, Pohutukawa holds a special place in the hearts of New Zealanders, Maori, in particular regard these trees as treasures and in the past lived in harmony with the forests. Experience these vanishing forests with two detailed coastal tours from Auckland. Visit geothermal hot pool locations in settings ranging from open beaches to sub-tropical resorts.
