Gumland vegetation, Kaikino valley, Northland

Mānuka shrubs dominate gumland scrub in northern New Zealand. Gumland vegetation grows on infertile soils that formerly carried kauri forest. Gumlands have been frequently burnt. Along with mānuka, they have a cover of Dracophyllum lessonianum, tall sedges and umbrella fern. They are a rich orchid habitat.
