This Weekly Snapshot is the last we will post while in New Zealand, our home for the past 7 months. As a tribute to this amazing country which has welcomed us and made us feel at home, we visited with some of the oldest residents of New Zealand, the Kauri trees. The tree pictured here, Te Matua Ngahere (Maori for “Father of the Forest”) is the oldest Kauri in New Zealand at an estimated 2000 years of age. Te Matua Ngahere is also the second largest living Kauri in New Zealand at over 53 feet in girth and 98 feet in height.
