‘‘I was born in Auck­land and we al­ways went for pic­nics at the park. It would be a great loss for these trees to be cut down.’’

– Karen Ise­mon­ger ‘‘They are a lo­cal de­light, es­pe­cially at time of bloom, Western Springs’ at­trac­tion [is] def­i­nitely com­ple­mented by these trees.’’ – Wil­liam Wong ‘‘We have enough mo­tor­ways, there are too many cars on the road. Stop build­ing more roads. It is time to think about a de­cent pub­lic transport sys­tem.’’ – Wal­ter Dendl ‘‘They are es­sen­tial to soak up all the nasty car fumes along St Lukes Rd and Great North Rd. They are also very old, beau­ti­ful, part of our her­itage and a sanc­tu­ary for many birds and in­sects.’’ – Karen Rego ‘‘Trees over ex­tra mo­tor­way lanes any day. Im­prove pub­lic transport in Auck­land – like the rest of the world.’’

– Lola Brinkers ‘‘These trees are of great his­tor­i­cal, cul­tural and aes­thetic value in a city rapidly los­ing its soul for un­sus­tain­able transport mea­sures. I reg­u­larly walk and bike past these trees and they make me happy. Please do not kill them Auck­land Transport.’’
