Research into kauri dieback

Saving our majestic trees

NZ kauri (Agathis australis) are part of an ancient family of trees (the Araucariaceae family). They are very long-lived with an average life expectancy of 600 years. Kauri dieback is a devastating disease of kauri trees. 

We are working with a number of organisations to investigate soil bio-controls to prevent the spread of kauri dieback.
