Agathus australis - kauri - Treehouse - 2

photographed by P C Tomlinson on 15/04/10

Kauri gum oozes from injuries

to prevent disease entering the wound.

Sometimes insects are trapped in the gum

before it hardens.

See the lump of gum at the foot of this tree.

location:

In the National Bank Courtyard at the rear of the Treehouse
