Ko ngā ngahere tawai (beech) ngā ngahere nui ki ngā ika whenua o Te Wai Pounamu, mai i Whakatū (Nelson) ki Te Rua-o-te-moko (Fiordland). E whā ngā momo tawai ki ēnei ngahere – hututawai (red beech), tirowhārangi (silver beech), tawhairauriki (mountain beech), tawai-rauriki (black beech). He uaua ka kitea he uru kotahi anake te momo tawai. He ngāwari ake te hīkoi i ngā ngahere tawai tērā i te hīkoi i ngā ngahere koroī, kapuka o Te Ika-a-Māui.
