Just came across this short film (really enjoyed it) while looking on the internet to learn more about the kauri tree. I hope the kauri tree in the news at the moment will not be cut down.

the almighty kauri, I have planted quite a few kauri on my place in the Hokianga, some are starting to grow tall now. On my property at Waiotemarama was one of the timber mills which aidded in death of many a fine tree. Louis What a treasure trove of fantastic bits of our past
