Pohutukawa and Rata: New Zealand’s Iron-Hearted Trees
by Philip Simpson

Pohutukawa and rata trees are among New Zealand’s most beloved and recognisable national icons, symbolising summer, nationhood and our unique natural environment. Pohutukawa and Rata: New Zealand’s Iron-hearted Trees celebrates these unique trees – their place in the natural world, their importance to M?ori, their role in symbolism, art, and design, and their many remarkable uses – as well as the threat they face today from possums, progress and people. Containing a wealth of new research, this book really does contain everything you ever wanted to know about pohutukawa and rata, generously illustrated with over 400 archival and contemporary photographs, diagrams, maps and full-colour reproductions of New Zealand artworks.
