Podocarpus "Totara" is a conifer reaching 30m high and has a diameter of up to 2.5m through. It has wide distribution in lowland to montane forests of the North, South, and Stewart Islands.

New Zealand Totara is Podocarp tree with separate sexes. The male tree has pollen cones, which develop in spring (October) at the ends of the old stems and are in groups of 1-3. New cones are green, but turn brown as they open and release pollen. New leaves, with a lighter green colour develop from the tips of the stems, just beyond the cones. The female fruit is a rounded green seed (4-5 mm) which sits on a red smooth succulent receptacle.
