Kahikatea Planting at Tuff

Ten large and very heavy kaihikatea trees donated by Don Turner of Takana plants were planted in wet areas this morning at Tuff Crater by a small group of Forest and Bird and other community volunteers. These trees love to have their feet wet and I have often watched silvereye birds searching for insects in kahikatea on the other side of the lagoon. Monarch  butterflies seem to also like feeding on them and I'm sure other small insects too..
