New Zealand has many beautiful forests. Unfortunately a big portion of this tremendous resource has been cut down in the early days, but conservation is now a number one issue in the whole country. Many forest reserves have been created. The Kauri (species of tree) is the most gigantic tree to be found. It has been used for timber, but the cutting of it is now regulated. One has to see such a tree to grasp its size. The picture only permits a faint glimpse of its majesty.
