Tree of the Month
We have received notification of a truly outstanding puriri tree (pictured, image credit: Thilo Beeker). The tree was submitted from a visitor from Sweden. Whilst some measurements of the tree where not able to be taken, close scrutiny of the image will show just how large this tree is! Further information is being sought on the tree to complete the file.
To view the tree, type 710 into the ‘Jump to a specific record’ search and click Jump.
Thank you to those that have sent in updates and new tree records. For those of you who would like to get in on the action to update tree records or register as a tree recorder simply go to our website and follow the instructions.
Best wishes for 2010 from the Notable Trees team
