These tree's are all in a small reserve outside of a small village called Raupunga. I took a small class up to this reserve to improve and test their identification skills. These trees were part of the test.This was probably the most sort after timber in New Zealand after Kauri almost every house in this country has Rimu in it. A beautiful tree with weeping foliage.
Generally found as an emergent above the canopy. This is how we get the straight stems. When growing in the open the tree does not lose its branches. The tree tends to have a lot of knots.
