Brown Pine ( Miro ) | Prumnopitys ferruginea
Is a forest tree preferring to live in shady damp sites where it can go up to 25 metres
in height. Between March- June it produces fleshy, large bright red seeds which are a
favourite food of kākā and wood pigeons. The wood pigeons often gorged
themselves on so many seeds that they could barely fly. These seeds are an
important food source for forest birds during winter months.
