More Information

Rimu
Dacrydium cupressinum

Dacrydium cupressinum (Rimu) is a large evergreen coniferous tree endemic to the forests of New Zealand. It was named as “red pine” by the European colonists, although this name is misleading since it is not a true pine (rather, it is a member of the southern conifer group the podocarps). Red pine is falling out of common use and the Māori name Rimu is now used.

Rimu grows throughout New Zealand, on the North Island, South Island and Stewart Island/Rakiura. Although most trees are now found on the West Coast of the South Island, the biggest trees tend to be in mixed podocarp forest near Taupo (e.g., Pureora, Waihaha, and Whirinaki Forests).
