Kauri are one of Aotearoa's unique taonga

Kauri trees are found amongst other native trees throughout the Upper North Island. But kauri dieback disease is threatening kauri with extinction. There is no cure for kauri dieback disease, it can be spread by just a pinhead of soil, and you can't tell by looking whether a tree is infected or not. But kauri will be saved – by people like you.

New Research Reports


We have completed a number of research projects and final reports are now available for research into heat treatment as well as new decision support tools in developing a baseline methodology and an engagement framework. We also have progress reports for phosphite research and additional research papers for our work in remote sensing and many more reports across a number of research topics.

We have also completed a major review of our science, to offer an insight on what we have achieved so far and identify areas of where we need to go.

Nursery Certification Scheme

New Zealand Plant Producers Incorporated (NZPPI) has just released the Plant Production Biosecurity Scheme (PPBS) for Plant Producers.  The scheme includes specific standards for producers of kauri to manage the risk of a nursery becoming infected by or spreading the pathogen Phytophthora agathidicida (kauri dieback). We encourage all plant producers of kauri to become PPBS certified.
