Kauri dieback

Kauri dieback is a disease caused by a fungus-like pathogen that is killing off Kauri trees in New Zealand. There is no control or treatment tool. The best way of saving the Kauri forest is to stop the spread of the disease to unaffected areas by cleaning your gear and stay on tracks.
To report any suspect sightings of diseased kauri on public or private land, phone the Kauri Dieback Hotline on 0800 NZ KAURI (69 52874) or send an to [email protected]
