Kauri dieback: Waitākere trees to get full health check

From Checkpoint, 5:56 pm on 23 April 2021

Auckland Council is giving thousands of kauri trees in the Waitākere Ranges a full health check.

The forest is being surveyed to monitor trees for years to come - tracking how kauri dieback disease affects individual trees and the wider population.

Our reporter Katie Doyle and Cameraman Dan Cook took a trip out to the ranges to see what it's all about.
