Save the 6 Pohutukawa trees on the corner of St Lukes Rd and Great North Rd.

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

Save the 6 Pohutukawa trees on the corner of St Lukes Rd and Great North Rd. As you know, these trees are over 80 years old and it isn't acceptable to decimate more of our natural heritage to simply add one more traffic lane . There must be a way to construct this intersection without hacking down these beautiful old trees.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Old, established and native trees are worthy to be saved.

      AT can if necessary, spend, in the scheme of things, more to find a way of NOT removing the trees - years of growth pleasure

      These trees are beautiful, have lived here a long time and add much to the local landscape and character of the area
