Tree Information x

Identifier: NR/1434
Tree Type: Single
Registered By: Redfern, J. R.
Registration Category: Notable tree/s – Local interest
General Notes:
The Norfolk Island pines growing in Pahi Reserve have been a feature of the local landscape since the early days of European settlement.
This is one of two growing approximately 100m north of the the Notable Fig tree NR/0501, which is growing within the same reserve. The western Norfolk Island pine, located 10m away, is smaller in girth and volume.
Both trees are registered as notable within the Kaipara District Plan ref. No.T7, Map 19,46 and have a combined STEM score 198 points.
Despite there being some canopy damage over the years the trees still make an important contribution to the history of the site and the local landscape (Redfern, 2017).
