TOTARA

 
The majestic podocarpus can can live to over 1000 years old. They can reach heights of 30 metres - but this can take 100 years. It is particularly hardy and can often be seen in farm paddocks in the North Island as the stock don't like to eat the prickly leaves. Even in small gardens they can be planted as a specimen tree, providing they are pruned well - they make a lovely shade tree. They are generally free of pest and disease problems.
