Prior to human arrival the drier central regions of Otago probably had a cover of low conifer-broadleaf forest made up of species like mountain toatoa (Phyllocladus alpinus), Hall's totara (Podocarpus hallii), broadleaf (Griselinia littoralis), and kanuka (Kunzea ericoides).
The common broadleaf tree species in mixed kauri forest include: tanekaha (Phyllocladus trichomanoides), towai (Weinmannia silvicola), kanuka (Kunzea ericoides), rewarewa (Knightia excelsa), and hinau (Elaeocarpus dentatus).
