What they’re say­ing on the pe­ti­tion page:

‘‘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 any­day. 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.’’ – Tim Low
