Tane Mahuta- Lord of the  forest

You are in the presence of one of the most ancient of trees.

In Maori Cosmology, Tane is the son of Ranginui the sky father and Papatuanuku the earth mother. Tane tore his parents apart, breaking their primal embrace, to bring light, space and air and allowing life to flourish.

Take is the life giver. All living creatures are his children. This is the largest living kauri tree in New Zealand. It is difficult to accurately estimate the age of Tane Mahuta, but it may be that Take Mahuta sprang from seed around 2000 years ago during the lifetime of exist.

The dimension of Tane Mahuta are:
Trunk height 17,7 metres. Total height 51,5 metres.
Trunk girth 13,8 metres. Trunk volume 244,5 metres

*The feeding roots of kauri trees are shallow and delicate. Walking off the formed protective paths and platforms can kill these giant trees.
