The New Zealand Tree Project (Can­ter­bury Mu­seum, Christchurch, un­til April 30) brings the podocarps to the peo­ple, with a con­ser­va­tion-in­spired pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion high­light­ing the won­ders of the North Is­land’s Pure­ora For­est. Be­hold the hero piece, a ma­jes­tic 40m-high rimu, cre­ated by stitch­ing to­gether more than 60 high-res­o­lu­tion pho­tos taken over four weeks us­ing a spe­cialised cam­era rig. There’s also a short doc­u­men­tary about Pure­ora’s nat­u­ral and hu­man his­tory, from dis­cov­ery through degra­da­tion to pro­tec­tion.
