Beach trees on mend

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Po­hutukawa trees dam­aged at Pt Che­va­lier beach ear­lier this month have now been re­paired.

The branches of sev­eral trees were bro­ken by con­trac­tors driv­ing dig­gers as part of the beach re-sand­ing project.

Re­me­dial prun­ing was done over two days last week, fin­ish­ing on Fri­day.

Auck­land City Coun­cil’s group man­ager arts, com­mu­nity and recre­ation pol­icy Ruth Stokes says the trees are now fine and there shouldn’t be any fur­ther prob­lems.

The cost of the re­pairs is es­ti­mated at $1500 to $2000 and was paid by the con­trac­tor at no cost to ratepay­ers.

The con­trac­tors work­ing on the beach ad­mit­ted full li­a­bil­ity for the dam­ages.
