Auckland trees an 'eyesore' after being cut in deep V shapes to avoid power lines

Good morning Auckland neighbours,

Auckland residents are up in arms after a row of trees was turned into an “eyesore” in a bid to protect some power lines.

Residents of Alford St, in the central Auckland suburb of Waterview, woke up last week to find the trees on their berms cut into deep V shapes.

John Jones, who lives opposite one of the trees, said they were “quite an eyesore”.

Auckland Council’s regional arborists and ecological manager David Stejskal said the trees were pruned by contractors Treescape as part of routine maintenance of trees growing under power lines.

The overzealous pruning was brought to the council’s attention by a local board member.

Officials have since visited the site and spoken to the contractor about the unacceptable nature of the pruning, Stejskal said.

“The power lines clearance programme needs to strike a balance between the regulatory clearance required to protect power lines and maintaining the viability of the tree,” he said.

Our contractors agree to clear trees to regulatory and contract specifications and best practice guidelines which in this case were not carried out.

“We are currently speaking to Treescape about what needs to be done to remedy the situation.”

Treescape confirmed it is working with the council to remedy the situation.

“We understand the concerns of the residents, and we’re working together to resolve the issue,” a spokesperson said.

“That’s all we can say at this stage.”

What do you think of the way the trees have been cut?

Hi folks
We're excited to be part of the neighbourly neighbourhood! Kia ora.

Please visit our website www.coeliac.org.nz... to find out more about Coeliac Disease.

People of all ages can have coeliac disease, and the importance of understanding the disease and how to manage a gluten free diet is particularly important for their wellbeing.

International research indicates there could be up to 100,000 people in our NZ team of 5 million with coeliac disease and of those 30,000 are likely to be children under the age of 18. However, a large proportion of those are unaware they have the condition.

The flow of our timetable has pivoted to the patisserie module as the ingredients are easier for the students to purchase at the supermarket (we are reimbursing them for this cost).

A MacBook camera does a reasonable job recording and live-streaming and the laptop does not seem to mind the heat of the oven when Chef Finn opens to door to check if the Rhubarb tart is ready.
Today is Crème caramel, Rhubarb custard tart with Raspberry Coulis.

We want March to be all about celebrating the connections we have while making new ones along the way. As we all know, what makes a neighbourhood great isn’t the houses and cars, gardens and streets - it’s the people who share their presence and aroha with each other.

A wonderful way to take part is to participate in Neighbours Day Aotearoa which takes place from 20 - 30th March. This year’s theme is ‘The Great Plant Swap’ - as an easy way for our neighbourhoods to grow stronger together. If you’re hosting an event, make sure to register it on their website: neighboursday.org.nz/join-in

Show us how you’re celebrating community this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz

Auckland houses are less affordable than those in all but three other cities from eight countries surveyed for the 2021 Demographia international housing affordability report.

It’s now more affordable to buy a house in San Francisco or London than in Auckland. A new report has ranked the Super City as the fourth least affordable housing market in the world.

The 2021 annual Demographia international housing affordability report, which is a scaled down version of previous years’ reports, looks at housing affordability in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, UK and the US.

It ranks 92 major housing markets – with populations of more than one million – in eight countries based on the median multiple, which measures median house price divided by gross median household income.

According to the report, Auckland now has a “median multiple” of 10.0. That’s up from 8.6 last year when it was the equal sixth most unaffordable market with Toronto, and from 6.4 in 2010, just a decade ago.

Regions with house prices more than three times the median regional income are considered unaffordable, so Auckland’s median multiple makes it severely unaffordable.
