Neighbours Deforesting for no reason

Beatriz from Meadowbank

Since i moved to Mt. Wellington I've been very upset about my neighbour's around cutting trees all the time.
Across the street there goes a Flowering big pohutukawa, 2 houses appart there was a beautiful pine tree in a corner and he spent 5 months cutting the poor creature piece by piece like torture for NO REASON. Another one beside me just killed the only tree in his backyard!
they weren't near their house, weren't blocking their view, weren't breaking pavement, there wasn't any logic reason to cut them.
These one in the photos just bough that old house 4 months ago, renovated it and just for the thrill of it they decided to destroy a whole thick beautiful bush in the back.
There was a HUGE tree in the middle surrounded by other smaller trees! It looked like a forest! They're not going to build anything on that place! The land is steep and has a volcanic soil full of big rocks. It was a nightmare scene to watch from my windows as all the tress fell. I used to have fresh and cool air coming in to my kitchen in these hot summer days, at least 5 or 6 different bird species living there, i could see they feeding their chicks, building their nests. I had shade from the afternoon sun. Now all the birds are gone and it's getting so much hotter and dry!
Now there's absolutely nothing left just a single small tree that is close to our fence right in front of our kitchen
( i imagine they tough they were doing us a favor to keep that one standing!)
Just want to register my complet frustration with this type of mindset that only sees trees as trouble.
This is absolutely the Worse season possible to be thinking about cutting trees! How dumb you have to be!
