Tawa Tree Single Sided Wooden Puzzle
The Tawa is a tall tree growing to 30 meters and is common in North Island forests. Tawa grows to be a solid canopy tree. Their large purple drupes are a staple food of birds, with their fruity flesh and is a favoured food of the Kereru (Wood Pigeon). The seeds are large and full of nutrients and the Kaka and Kereru are the only birds capable of ingesting such a large seed The Tawa tree has a graceful manner in which the willow like foliage hangs from the branches. When the wind blows and the sun is shining this tree is a garden splendour as the leaves display their bluish undersides. It grows as a rather slender tree to 7 metres in height and becomes more graceful with size.
