Hoheria angustifolia is found on forest margins from New Plymouth southward. This lacebark grows into a slender tree about 6m tall. It has a long juvenile stage when its columnar form is a tangled mass of small roundish leaves that eventually become elongated and serrated on the adult, with the leaves becoming a mid-green and paler underneath. In midsummer the tree is smothered with starry petalled white flowers. H.angustifolia makes an attractive specimen tree.
