Ngahere koroī, kapuka ki Te Ika-a-Māui

Ngahere koroī, kapuka ki Te Ika-a-Māui

He koroī (evergreen) ngā ngahere ki Aotearoa. Ka makuru te tipu o ngā kapuka (broadleaf) – te rarauhe, te pirita, te raupō, aha atu – ki raro i ngā rākau nui. Kākahungia ai te papa o te ngahere ki te rimurimu (moss), ki te pukoko (lichen). Ko te mataī, te miro, te rimu, te tōtara (ngā rākau teitei ake) ētahi o ngā rākau koroī kei ngā ngahere o Te Ika-a-Māui. Nā tō rātou takoto ki ngā whenua tāpotupotu, i whakawāteatia ēnei ngahere mō ngā kaupapa ahu whenua.
