Pohutukawa Roots

Pohutukawa Roots

Pohutukawa trees thrive in coastal environments, but with the sea views come exposure to wind and weather, and sea: cliff faces can collapse under trees, and water can undermine the shore as in this example at Cornwallis beach: wave action has carved into the soil, exposing life underneath.
