Listing Detail Tabs

This is a new kind of tree book, not a guide to species or simply a photographic study, it is a collection of individual portraits of the most remarkable trees in New Zealand. Mysterious and awe-inspiring, these mighty and often sacred trees have fascinating lives and histories - many have been around for hundreds of years, some for thousands. From the 800-year-old pohutukawa that stands at 'the place of leaping' at Cape Reinga to the windswept macrocarpa at Slope Point, Trees of New Zealand covers not only our oldest and largest trees but also trees that have histories that are linked to our own, such as the Gallipoli Pine at Taradale Cemetery, grown as a memorial from the seed of Gallipoli's Lone Pine Tree. Photographer Mike Hollman's beautiful photographs make these trees come alive and highlights the gorgeous landscapes that often surround them.
