NZ Beech Forest

Author(s): Ray Cometti

Wall charts

Beech forests make up just under half of New Zealands remaining native forest. These southern beech trees evolved on the continent of Gondwanaland some 135 million years ago. New Zealand has four endemic evergreen species of beech trees: red, silver, and black. These trees grow along the mountain chains of both islands, as well as on the North Islands Central Plateau. Native birds such as kiwi, kaka, morepork, rifleman and yellowhead, as well as the two species of native bat, regularly make their nests in mature beech trees.
