Merry Christmas from Auckland Council

Merry Christmas from Auckland Council cutting pohutukawas

Merry Christmas from Auckland Council cutting pohutukawas

The six Pohutukawa trees on the corner of St Lukes Rd and Great North Rd (opposite MOTAT) are under threat from Auckland Transport’s plan to create an additional lane for the approach to the new motorway overbridge. These trees are over 80 years old and were originally planted as part of the Chamberlain Park Golf course. How much more land, amenity, natural heritage and pollution needs to be devoted to new roads. Please sign and share this petition to get Auckland Transport to come up with a plan that does not result in these trees being cut down. You can find the campaign to save the Pohutukawa 6 on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/savethepohutukawa6

    Well, you will probably know by now that the Auckland Council (Auckland Transport) finally agreed to leave the trees standing and build their roading around them! Major victory due to the efforts of many passionate people including the incredibly active Christine Rose! She is such a champion for our environment!
