Pohutukawa Tree Single Sided Wooden Puzzle
The Pohutukawa Tree is known as New Zealand’s native Christmas tree because of the bright red blooms that decorate them during the Christmas and summer season. Their leaves are leathery and olive green and the trunk is typically gnarled and twisted. Pohutukawa grows primarily along coastlines and in coastal forests, as it is well adapted to withstand salt laden winds and drought. Pohutukawa have very dense, strong, dark red wood, which helps them withstand wind damage and drought. They are very slow growing, growing up to 15 metres tall and can live over 1,000 years.
