Preserving our kohekohe forest
Environmentally subtle information signs for the walk through mature kohekohe forest with spectacular views of Kāpiti Island. A Nga Uruora Kāpiti intiative.
Kohekohe trees were once common in coastal and lowland New Zealand forests. In exposed sites near the sea, such as this escarpment on the Kāpiti Coast, it dominates the canopy. Kohekohe is the sole representative in New Zealand of the tree genus Dysoxylum which is otherwise only found in tropical and subtropical regions of the world.
