Quiz: Can you guess our native trees from a single leaf?

Trees are all around us, yet many of us will be hard pushed to identify a tree just based on its leaf. So we’re putting your knowledge to the test!

Take this quiz to find out how many native trees you can identify from just a single leaf.

How can you get involved?

Put on your gummies, grab a shovel and get involved with a community group near you. Or check out Akl Biodiversity on Facebook for upcoming planting days.

Keep our kauri standing

Kauri dieback in Auckland is a serious problem and it’s important we all play our part to prevent the spread of the disease.

If you enter or leave a forest/area with native trees anywhere in the region, here are three easy steps you need to remember:

  • Scrub – clean all soil off your footwear and other gear
  • Spray – your footwear and gear at every cleaning station you encounter. Kauri dieback can be spread by just a pinhead of soil
  • Stay – on the designated open tracks.
