Plants living in a shared eco-environment at Waipoua Lodge

When you visit the ancient kauri trees Tane Mahuta (2,000 years old) and Te Matua Ngahere (3,000 years old) and look up you will see approx 40 different species of plants and even other trees living in the branches. It’s pretty special how mother nature allows these different plants to co-habitat. A lesson for mankind?
