Native tree protest continues as man creates suspended platform

Melanie Earley Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours, a man protesting against the removal of native trees in Avondale has created a suspended platform in the hopes police won’t be able to remove him.
Arborist Zane Wedding, is currently dangling below a puriri tree on Canal Road. Wedding said his new platform would make it harder for him to be removed than previous activists arrested during the 49-day occupation.

Do you support the occupation?
