NZ Natural History

New Zealand indigenous tree bulletin series No. 4. Pohutukawa is one of the best -know and best- loved native trees in New Zealand. Endemic to this country, it is a distinctive multi stemmed tree up to 25 m high, and is found mainly along the coastal fringe, often on rocky cliffs, througout the northern half of the North Island. This bulletin provides information on pohutukawa and related species, its distribution, historical use, ecology amd habitat. It describes current threats to the species from a number of injurious agencies. Also discussed are methods for the management of pohutukawa, including seed collection, propagation, planting, promotion of growth and wood quality, and management of existing trees. A picture of the status and special features of pohutukawa in four northern regions administered by local regional councils is presented, as well as a set of guidelines for people who are enthusiastic about continued planting and management of pohutukawa.
