More Kauri Trees

27 December 2012 | Manginangina Forest Reserve
Marilyn Sunny
After moving to a pile mooring at Opua Marina and the weather cleared we took time to see more sights.

We went to the Pukatui forest near KeriKeri -- near the marina. The Manginagina Reserve has a nice walk through several Kauri groves. The forest area is swampy -- like near Tane Mahuta and the tree roots very shallow. For this reaason they have a boardwalk in the forest for viewing.

While there we met two other cruiser boats -- Katydid and BlackDog -- both with boats at the Marina. Some of the trees have very large trunks. A few of the cruisers decided to ascertain how large the circumference really was. Looks like from the picture, they are quite large. We also noted that these trees are not as big as the giant on on the other side of the island that we saw -- Tane Mahuta.
