Kauri-podocarp-broadleaved forests occur in north of the North Island approximately above 38° latitude, but are most abundant on the Coromandel Peninsula and in Northland.
These forests are our most diverse and close to the coast are dominated by pohutukawa, puriri, kohekohe and karaka, while inland towai, northern rata, rimu and kauri are more common.
