Laurelia novae-zelandiae is a very handsome tree found in swampy forests and gullies throughout the North Island and South to Marlborough and the West Coast of the South Island. As the tree matures, the pale brownish grey trunk becomes attractively buttressed at the base. Pukatea requires plenty of moisture and is ideal for planting in damp areas or on the edges of lakes and streams. Slow growing.
