Original Pen and Ink:
"Rimu Forest"
NZ Forest Art

The lovely Rimu (Dacrydium cupressinum) is one of our New Zealand Podocarps and is allied to the pines, spruces and firs of other countries.

But this sketch shows how very different our native forests are from pine forests overseas.

Even where our natural forests contain native podocarps, there is much more variety of tree types, broadleaf and podocarps combining together to make a very varied forest, and this is one of the joys of our bush.
