More trees will be removed in the Northboro Reserve as part of the Reserve land swap sanctioned by the Local Devonport Takapuna board.
Auckland Council do recognise that large trees are in short supply in the Auckland area and are important to soak up storm water, add shade, and soak up carbon to help the climate but they continue to allow them to be destroyed.
The Council are still sending out mixed messages that they support the Forest and Bird initiative of the North West Wild-link a tree covered corridor to allow birds to move between the bird friendly islands to the Waitakeres. So why do they continue to sanction the destruction of so many trees?
