    Hi Gareth have you heard about the Parapara tree which is responsible for the deaths of so many birds in New Zealand? There is a link not far down the page of New Zealand Bird Rescue Charitable Trust if you are interested. It would be fabulous to have all these destroyed as the Birds die a slow death.

    Brad Windust Recently there has been a campaign initiated by members of various organisations to have Parapara banned from sale and cultivation. This is on the grounds that the tree kills numerous birds and that it is not native to New Zealand. Scientific peer-reviewed studies and literature shows that bird captures do happen but hardly at the exaggerated levels promoted by these individuals. Parapara is also indigenous to New Zealand. The species is at risk throughout its natural world-wide range because of vandalism by people obsessed with its inflated bird-killer reputation. NZPCN would suggest that cultivation is a matter of informed decision. Nurseries stocking this plant should clearly label specimens with the warning that the fruits may catch small birds and insects.
