Auckland Council has rolled out its third dieback survey, in order to try and limit the impact of kauri dieback disease, RNZ reports. The first two surveys were centered on finding kauri dieback-causing pathogens in the soil. There will be more than 3000 random kauri, both healthy and unhealthy, to be tracked and monitored over the years. Further, the survey will also aid staff in understanding how measures like track upgrades, the rāhui, closures and hygiene measures have impacted the spread of the disease.
