Kauri grown from seeds that in­spired artist Colin McCa­hon are avail­able to pur­chase. The McCa­hon House Trust are selling 600 lim­ited edi­tion trees for $50 each. Each tree comes with a book­let, record­ing its unique edi­tion num­ber, along with in­for­ma­tion about its her­itage and how to care for the sapling. Plant­ing kauri helps pro­tect the species’ fu­ture, which is cur­rently suf­fer­ing from kauri dieback disease. Money raised will go to­wards the work of the

McCa­hon House Trust and The Kauri Project, which pro­moteS aware­ness of kauri dieback. The McCa­hon House Trust was es­tab­lished as a place for the public to visit and recog­nise McCa­hon’s life and art. The trees go on sale at McCa­hon Kauri Com­mu­nity Day on Au­gust 6 from 11am to 4pm at Ti­ti­rangi War Memo­rial Hall. Visit mc­c­a­hon­house.org.nz/kauri
