Seeking kauri resistant to dieback

25 July 2018

Kauri cones have been collected from healthy trees growing in areas with a known history of kauri dieback.

The seed from these 90 odd trees has now been sown under strict hygiene protocols in the Scion Nursery's kauri polyhouse. When they are old enough their response to exposure to the disease will be observed.
