Kauri Pine planted 1853, died 2006.
Bat damage in Palm Grove at the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney. In the foreground is a grand old Kauri Pine in the process of being removed from the Gardens after it was killed by the roosting of flying foxes. It had been collected as a seedling from New Caledonia by Charles Moore, the longest serving director of the Gardens, and planted here in 1853. This species of Kauri (Agathis moorei) is named after Moore. Photograph by Jaime Plaza.
