Tree Information x

Identifier: WCR/1662
Tree Type: Single
Registered By: Cadwallader, B.G.
Registration Category: Notable tree – National interest
General Notes:
For many years the Stoney Creek rimu was regarded the largest in the South Island but there are now several well documented trees that are larger. Having said that, the tree is still very impressive and well worth the short detour off SH7 just south of Reefton to go and view it (Cadwallader, B.G., 2020).
