Kauri stump on the Kauaeranga Kauri Trail

Kauri stump on the Kauaeranga Kauri Trail

This massive kauri stump is a reminder of the forest clearance that took place in the Kauaeranga valley and other accessible parts of the Coromandel Peninsula between about 1860 and 1920. In 2010 only very small tracts of land on the peninsula still had original kauri forest.
