Kauri Wood Is Protected And Limited In Supply...
The Kauri wood has been recovered from 'swamps' as it is illegal to chop one of these protected trees down.
Rimu trees are also protected, and supply of the wood from both these trees is limited and precious.
The Kauri tree, Agathis australis, is New Zealand's largest and most famous native tree, and also one of the largest in the world.
Kauri timber has a beautiful and distinctive grain which when polished is a deep golden color with hues, textures, and sheens that constantly change under differing shades of light.
Kauri covered once much of the area of North Auckland and the Coromandel but to date there are only relatively small areas where they grow. The ancient Maoris have been known to construct a 25 metre (82 ft) war-canoe out of a single Kauri trunk. The timber is light and very durable and of a straw or amber color, virtually free from knots and other defects. Widely used in the early days for boat building.
The largest living Kauri in existence is Tane Mahuta (Maori for "Lord of the Forest"). It is 4.4 metres (14.4 feet) in diameter and 17.7 metres (58.1 feet) to the first branch.
The oldest tree is estimated to be 2000 years old. This is Te Matua Ngahere (Father of the Forest) in Waipoua Forest.
Or, the items in our shop are made from Rimu trees, Dacrydium Cupressinum, or also known as Red Pine. Usually grows to a height of between 20 and 35 metres (65 - 115 ft) but sometimes even 50 metres (164 ft).
The straight trunk is up to 1.5 metres (5 ft) in diameter and the bark is dark brown with a flaking texture. Rimu is one of the best known species in New Zealand and is an excellent timber tree.
Heart Rimu is one of the most beautifully figured woods and is very often used in quality furniture.
Otherwise, the other wooden products that we have for sale are made from local pine tree, grown as plantation wood.

"Inside the book is all class...I didn't hesitate about buying it, mostly because I had been to New Zealand and loved the land and the people. I just knew it was perfect..."
I was making a book of surfing photographs for my brother from a trip we took to Mexico. I wanted a photo album that had the feel of our journey as well as one that represented my brother.
I scanned the internet endlessly, google after google. I finally came across Products From New Zealand.com and found a Rimu wood album with metal hinges. It had that perfect rustic quality, easily felt homemade - very well homemade. Inside the book is all class: black pages with soft, white overlay sheets.
I didn't hesitate about buying it, mostly because I had been to New Zealand and loved the land and the people. I just knew it was perfect. I called Kristina, asked a few questions about size and whether or or not I would be able to get it on time.
Everything worked perfectly and my brother, his wife, and anyone else who has seen the book so far just love it. And everyone comments on the album itself, how beautiful it is, how like my brother it is and did I make it.
As much as I would like to say "yes," to the last part, I do not and give credit where credit is due. Products from New Zealand.com did amazing work and customer service was first rate.

"I have never received better service from an on-line company before!!! I do not think I have ever received as wonderful customer service as I have received from you from other places. I just received my order (great timing by the way) and I am still amazed and astounded by the great customer service, the free gifts, and the nice hand-written letter, not to mention the quality of the product itself.
I am definitely going to return to Products from New Zealand Ltd., and I am spreading the word to everyone I know. Thank you again for the great service!!!"

"...the message from you merely reinforces the greatness of you and your country." "Kristina, I have met a few New Zealanders--all of whom have been so friendly and kind. And, now, the message from you merely reinforces the greatness of you and your country. Thank you for taking the time...it is truly appreciated."
