WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
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
