The native flora of New Zealand really is unique – 80% of our trees, ferns and flowering plants are found nowhere else on Earth. New Zealand’s Native Trees, launched in Conservation Week by the Hon. Kate Wilkinson, is a celebration of this.

With 576 pages, and more than 2300 photographs, it’s bound to become a loved and well used resource in your home. I’m already a little jealous of whoever wins a copy!

To be in to win, leave a comment on this post before 12 noon, Monday 10 October 2011, telling us why you want the book. A winner will be selected at random and contacted by email.

The giveaway is open to all New Zealand residents, except employees of the Department of Conservation and their immediate family.

Good luck!

New Zealand’s Native Trees is valued at $120 and is available to purchase from bookstores nationwide and online from
