Today’s photos come from the Taheke Scenic Reserve near Whangarei.
The reserve is home to a grove of regenerating kauri, an impressive waterfall and the beautiful Taheke River…
This week DOC begun its programme of upgrading tracks, through its kauri forest, to help prevent the spread of kauri dieback.
The Taheke Water Fall track in Whangarei is the first of 200 tracks through DOC reserves in Northland, with stands of kauri, being upgraded to help prevent kauri dieback being spread.
Kauri dieback is a fungus-like disease specific to New Zealand kauri and can kill trees of all ages. More information about the disease and how to stop it spreading can be found on the Keep Kauri Standing website.
