World’s Rarest Given Kiwi Name

A grove of one of the world’s rarest trees has been named after NZ plant conservation scientist David Given. The Wollemi Pine, believed to be extinct until re-discovered in Australia’s Blue Mountains in 1994, is a close relative to the NZ Kauri. The grove of five trees – christened the David Given collection- was auctioned at Sotheby’s in October.
