The Mighty Kauri Tree

The Kauri tree comes from one of the most ancient tree families ever discovered and is found in New Zealand and Australia.  It is the second largest tree in the world.  This one is just a baby at a mere 800 years old.  They can live to be several thousand years old.

Karen, isn't nature amazing! Thank you Lord for giving us such wonders!
That is a marvelous tree and a lovely shot of it. You almost had to travel by car to get far enough away from it to get it all in the frame!

They are massive tree but not as big as the Sequoias. I think they are a related species.
