Yellow: Save the trees.

This road is lined with one hundred years old Pohutukawa trees. 6 trees were slated to be chopped to make way for a road extension. This is really sad. Public protest led this decision to be reversed, and there is a happy ending.

In another part of the city, a tree was saved after a young man climbed up, and stayed on the tree. The protester who perched in an old Auckland kauri tree for three days has come down and been charged with trespassing.


Stay mellow with yellow!

Hi Ann, I love trees very much and hate it when they get chopped down in the name of 'progress', so am really happy that these six trees were saved.. Yay for people power :)
