Old Tree

I wonder if this tree is as old as Auckland. The branch of the tree is sawn off, may be it is diseased.
There are many trees in New Zealand which are very old. Some of the Kauri trees were growing when Christ was alive. They are more than 50 metres tall, with trunk girths of up to 16 metres.
In New Zealand, if the tree is more than six metres tall, you are not allowed to cut it down.
