  1.  Mingimingi seedling  :   growing from a moss covered bank in the Kauri forest.

  2.  Giant Kauri tree: Tane Mahuta, in the Waipoua Forest, Northland. 51.5m high. 

  3.  Cathedral Grove: huge Kauri trees, 30  minutes walk into the Waipoua Forest

Mingimingi seedling growing on the Rickers track, Waipoua forest.

A ricker is a young Kauri tree which has a conical shape and grows tall, with branches all the way up its trunk. Young in Kauri terms means up to 100 years old. 

The mature Kauri has no branches on the trunk, which is straight and massive. The branches gradually fall off, starting at the bottom, so a big Kauri has a mound of debris at its base.

The remaining  branches form a crown at the top of the column. 

In the Cathedral Grove, the crowns of numerous Kauri trees make a canopy, which is like the roof of a cathedral, supported by the column-like trunks.
