Another Auckland suburb has come under fire for unattractive tree pruning.

Waterview’s Alford St made headlines last week after residents complained the trees had been cut into unsightly V-shapes by Auckland Council contractor Treescape.

Doria Johnson, who lives on Scott Rd in Papakura, said the trees on her road have had the same treatment, from the same contractor.

Every single tree has been cut down the middle to avoid the power lines, she said.

“It’s not just my tree, it's the entire street ... It looks like a nightmare, it's disgusting.”

Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.

Kiwis may become complacent and start to ignore government guidance if lockdowns become more frequent, according to experts.

Auckland moved back into a week-long level 3 lockdown on Sunday after two fresh community cases of Covid-19 were discovered.

But University of Auckland associate professor Susanna Trnka​ says if people no longer feel a sense of urgency they will be less compelled to follow the rules.

"During the first lockdown it was understood that extraordinary times require extraordinary measures,” the social anthropologist said.

"But as it becomes lockdown two, three and four, the sense of the urgency has shifted and isn't so palpable."

Senior lecturer Sarah Cowie, who is an expert on psychology and behaviour, said it was "certainly a possibility" that people could become more complacent during recurring lockdowns.

“There's evidence from places overseas that have been flung in and out of lockdown that people do become a little bit more complacent the more you have,” she said.

“If we are doing things in line with level 3 and not seeing the benefits of that, it might feel discouraging."

The Gribblehirst Park Rugby field enjoyed a brief spell of being open, but the fences are back up around the field. Looks like the major reconstruction was a disaster.
