The architecture of kauri is very different from the northern conifers, indeed. Anyway, branches and leaves are included in the biomass estimate for the kauri stand. For the methods, see source #4. I added a sentence about this to my text above.

Although Trounson Kauri Park is the most massive kauri stand, the very biggest individuals (Tane Mahuta etc.) are not there? Right?

Trounson Big Tree is incredible! Could be larger than Tane Mahuta.
