In 2015, climbers, scientists and photographers spent more than 100 hours over four weeks high in the boughs of giant Rimu and Kahikatea trees within the biodiverse Pureora Forest.

Using a specially-designed camera rig suspended from the canopy, they captured 120,000 images, 1,200 video clips and 28 epic time-lapse sequences of this revered historic forest. The result is a neverseenbefore, high-resolution image from a level viewpoint with no distortion, of a mature native tree.

The New Zealand Tree Project is a film and photography project sharing imagery of majestic trees and native forests from perspectives that are rarely experienced. United in the aim of igniting interest and action in nature conservation, the team members come from a variety of backgrounds, including ecologists at the University of Waikato, arborists from Wintec and skilled visual artists from Australia.
