Kāingaroa

Ko pinus radiata te rākau nui ki Kaingaroa i te puku o Te Ika-a-Māui; ko Monterey pine tētahi atu o ōna ingoa. Kotahi miriona heketea te nui o ngā ngahere pinus radiate ki Aotearoa. Nō California tēnei momo rākau, i kawea ki Aotearoa i te rau tau 1900. Ka makuru te tipu o tēnei rākau ki Aotearoa, e 28 tau ka tae ki tōna pakaritanga, he tere ake tēnei whanaketanga ki tērā i California. He rākau tēnei e mahia nuitia ana hei hanga whare.
