A tree disease has infected a number of kauri tress in the north island.
The Department of Conservation is working to control the spread of kauri dieback.
Government funding for research into the disease is due to end in the middle of next year.
The disease is close to Tane Mahuta, New Zealand’s largest kauri tree, in the Waipoua Forest.
Auckland Council said the disease has reached trees 60 metres away from Tane Mahuta, the largest tree in New Zealand.
The disease has been found throughout Auckland and in Northland.
