The Hanger, 1980 (2 o 3)

The Hanger, 1980

By 1980 the regenerating forest known as the Hanger was dominated by five-finger and māhoe. Mānuka was no longer common. The seedlings and saplings of large forest trees such as tōtara, miro and tawa were growing in the understorey. In time, these will probably form the forest canopy.
