A possible word of caution is that totara will generate a single dominant trunk only if grown in amongst other vegetation. In open ground totara will develop into a multi stemmed bush as it does not have to compete for light. Maybe relevant for your intended symbolism :confused:

While totara are my favourite tree for growing here, the one thing I don't like about them is it's very, very difficult to get things to grow under or near the canopy, if that interferes with the symbolism of it?

Nikau fulfill everything except the spreading bit... cabbage trees are pretty amazing too, and fulfil your criteria. It was an important food and medicinal tree for maori, and almost every part of the plant was used for healing.
