Tree felling destroys canopy trees

Matai with it's head taken out

The trees behind Oderings Nursery were being felled and the tree fellers felled a tree right across the boundary into Mangaiti  Reserve completely taking out a 10 year old Rimu and taking the head out of a Matai. This was very disappointing. We grow trees from seed and know how long it takes for a canopy tree like a Rimu and Matai to grow. One quick act like this destroys 10 years of growth. That is 2022 to get a tree back to the same maturity.
