Grand-Father Of Pohutukawas

The largest of all pohutukawa trees (the famous NZ Christmas tree) is in Te Araroa, just up the coast from East Cape. The whole east coast is covered in old pohutukawas that were a delight to see, even in their non-flowering mode.
Another incredibly rich vein of driftwood

Driving on, looking at the old trees

It's not all arboreal splendor in New Zealand

Here are some of the worst clear cuts we've ever seen

Almost before and after photos with the trees and the clear cuts.
