Auck­land Coun­cil is ask­ing res­i­dents to clean their shoes to en­sure the sur­vival of Kauri trees in the Waitakere Ranges. Kauri dieback re­search con­firmed that the ranges is the most heav­ily af­fected area of Kauri for­est in New Zealand with the in­fec­tion rates more than dou­bling in the last five years. En­vi­ron­ment and Com­mu­nity chair coun­cil­lor Penny Hulse said these are alarm­ing re­sults and ur­gent ac­tion is re­quired for the Kauri forests to stand a chance.
