Campbells Bay School pōhutukawa trees saved from the chop after local outcry

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Hi neighbours. A grove of pōhutukawa trees that were to be axed to make way for new classrooms have been saved from the chop following local outcry.

The Ministry of Education planned to fell the trees – five pōhutukawa and one Norfolk pine – at Campbells Bay School in Auckland early this year.

The plans prompted parents and local residents to launch a petition calling for the trees to be saved, and instead design a building which preserves them.

But this month, the Ministry of Education has shared new plans for the classroom block.

It will be set back an additional 4.5 metres from the school’s fence on Aberdeen Rd, meaning the six trees will remain, with some limited root reduction and canopy trimming.
