Heads mis­placed

Central Leader - - LETTERS -

I am very sad to see the chop­ping down of a (at least)100-year-old po­hutukawa at 2 Gle­n­arm Rd, Mt Roskill.

It was about the only thing of beauty in a stark and brazen land­scape of McDon­ald’s and other cor­po­rate busi­nesses of con­sump­tion.

I truly think that Auck­land coun­cil­lors have their heads in the wrong place be­cause if this is how they want to cre­ate the world’s most liv­able city then they are com­pletely in the dark.

The tree may have been on pri­vate prop­erty but its pres­ence be­longed and helped to iden­tify the en­tire com­mu­nity.

Now we have bright lights and cold steel and plas­tic. More like the small­minded lit­tle city and not man­dated by me.
