This gives an idea to the size of these Kauri Pines
A cross section from a Kauri Pine, the plaque reads "This Kauri Pine slab was sawn at Yangaburra mill in the 1960s. Its girth measurment is six meters, a similar size to the Twin Kauris. Scientists estimate this tree was one thousand years old when cut."
