In the past, large areas of New Zealand's giant podocarp forests were felled to make way for farms. Today some of the steep and unproductive sites on many of these farms are being replanted with podocarps by farmers and environmental groups. The same species of podocarps, kahikatea, matai, tōtara and rimu are returning to the place they once occupied.
