These photos do not convey the huge size and girth of 'Tane Mahuta', a kauri tree, which is over 2,000 years old.

It is 18 metres in circumference, 60 metres to the first branches and, after the Californian Giant Sequioia's, the largest trees in the world.

One artist carved a one piece spiral staircase out of the trunk which allegedly sold for over US$1m.
