Abstract: Kauri are under threat from microscopic spores, found in soil, that cause kauri dieback. The disease infects kauri roots. It kills kauri of all ages and nearly all infected trees die. The disease can be spread through the movement of contaminated soil on people’s footwear. To help prevent the disease spreading the Department of Conservation is upgrading high use tracks in its kauri forest. This involves eliminating wet, muddy sections of track and protecting the roots of kauri near the tracks. (no keywords)
