Discover New Zealand’s Last Frontier /

The New Zealand Tree Project will present, for the first time in December 2015, a huge portrait of a rimu tree in its entirety. This never-seen-before perspective of a beautiful native tree presents exceptional detail from a level viewpoint and without distortion. The small NZ Tree Project team of photographers, scientists and tree climbers has created a fascinating exhibition to tell the story of New Zealand's forests and conservation history. With something for everyone, this exhibition is not to be missed.

This collaborative project documents the mighty trees and the unseen canopies in the Pureora Forest Park.  The resulting exhibition and accompanying documentary showcase the natural beauty and importance of the forest. Through interviews with scientists, protestors, former loggers and local iwi this exhibition aims to share the unique social history and ecological importance of Pureora, a forest not only rich in diversity and wildlife, but one that played a pivotal role in the conservation of forests all throughout New Zealand.

The New Zealand Tree Project will be open for viewing:
