Kahikatea is our tallest New Zealand native tree which can grow up to sixty metres tall having a rather straight, slender trunk, and relatively small crown. The separate male and female trees which can grow in wet, swampy, fertile soil, may often appear in dense stands or be more scattered. Once one of the most common native trees widespread throughout the Waikato, King Country and Westland, timber milling and land clearance have severely reduced its habitats. Its odourless timber was used for making butter boxes, and it was favoured for boat building, but was seldom used for building constructure because it was readily attacked by the larvae of bora.
