Greytown

Time to leave this walk .. I'll save a few for the archives.
I'll finish with trees and a funny.
Greytown loves their trees, they were the first place in New Zealand to celebrate Arbor Day in 1890.

The most famous is a massive gum tree 40 metres high and 30 wide. Understood to be the largest gum tree in NZ.
I couldn't get it all in frame so you get it in bits

Apparently brought over the Rimutuka's from Wellington in a wheelbarrow as a seedling in (I'm guessing) 1860's. Interesting journey now with sealed roads ..can't imagine it then

This tree looks like it has a fine film of wax all over it's trunk. It is a very beautiful tree and well composed photo.
