Save the Ancient Pohutukawa
We are raising around $6000 for an injunction and legal proceedings required to protect this tree from potential imminent destruction.Auckland
We are raising around $6000 for an interim injunction that has been obtained to protect this tree from imminent destruction.
This ancient pohutukawa was a scheduled tree under the old District Plan, but was inexplicably omitted from the new Unitary Plan, an error the council has admitted. Mayor Goff and Councillors have instructed Council officers to fix the problem.
However, the fix may take time!
To prevent the tree from being removed or damaged before the Council can make a move, The Tree Council has been to court to obtain an interim injunction to give the tree temporary legal protection and instruct the Council to correct their error and return the tree's scheduled status.
We are also making every attempt to meet with the developer to discuss options for development that include the tree.
I am a member of the Tree Council board and a landscape architect.
Use of funds
The funds will be utilised to pay the Barrister who has taken on the case and is working for a much reduced rate. If the monies exceed the target then The Tree Council will use the funds to investigate options for scheduling 587 trees already nominated.

Thanks you for all the donations received over the last few weeks. We are getting closer to our target and I will update you on proceedings.
Council are now supporting the application to correct the error and return the tree to the schedule. They will be presenting evidence.
