The second largest group of Chatham dendroglyphs is Taia dendroglyphs.

During the review and counting in November - December 1998 (1) here was found 21 tree with 26 carvings. Researchers though were not convinced that they found all trees - there might be more.

Taia nature reserve area was fenced to prevent grazing in the late 1970s - early 1980s.

In the late 1940s here were found 49 carvings (2).
