#AtoZChallenge G is for Green New Zealand

Enjoying The Native Green New Zealand Tree Rimu.

The Native Green New Zealand Tree Rimu

The rimu tree is a native of New Zealand. It can grows to 50m (165 feet) tall and live a 1000 years. The New Zealand government has now halted logging rimus on public land. So I treasure my solid wooden table and this trolley as I love the mellow colour. And the leaves are green to fit in with today’s prompt.

Even though I google most things I wish to reference I have kept my New Zealand Trees reference book. It might be 40 years old however the trees have been around much longer so is still up to date!

Or view this #GenealogyPhotoADay along with others on Instagram.

  1. Your native trees are stunning. I visited New Zealand back in 2000. Loved every minute. One of the activities our group participated in was with a conservation group. We took a short hike through an older forest and at the end everyone planted tree saplings. Such a peaceful day! I may have to go dig out my travel journal from that trip. Cheers!

  2. What a beautiful tree! Unfortunately the US government is going in the opposite direction: obscene profit over the environment. Glad to know there are countries protecting their natural resources.

    1. Shawna, thanks for checking out my blog post on the Rimu tree in New Zealan. Sorry it has been a while for your comments p to show. They automatically ended up in the spam pile but I rescued them so they are approved now. Fran

    1. Yes it’s nice when governments do things that count. There is no need to cut down some types of trees when there are sustainable substitutes. While radiata pine might not be as nice as rimu it is adequate for most purposes where rimu was used.

  3. The wood of the trolley is indeed a lovely mellow tone and the book illustrations would definitely help in identifying the tree. Scientific illustrations are fascinating as they have to pick out the salient characteristics but leave the whole recognisable.
