Descripción

Locally dominant over a small area of coastal shrubland / low forest.

Images from one of two extant natural populations of this tree in New Zealand. Although abundant in Tasmania and portions of eastern Australia this tree has (at least since it was first discovered in New Zealand) remained extremely localised, being known from scattered sites from Kawhia to Mohakatino. Only two natural populations now remain. However, the same tree is also abundantly naturalised over large parts of New Zealand, and it would seem based on palynological and macro-fossil evidence that it or something close to it was once quite common toward the end of the Miocene throughout Otago, Southland and the Western Waikato.

Descripción

Scattered along cliff tops. This population is the result of past deliberate planting by iwi (Armstrong & de Lange 2005).
