  • Save Graham's Bush
    The Tree Council has achieved a great result with a partial victory- the damage that will be done to the bush has been minimised! After years of community outrage, an appeal and most recently mediation with Auckland Council, The Tree Council are very impressed with the outcome. Securing a considerable extension to the proposed bridge crossing the gully from 28 to 40m span. This means that the abutments supporting the road bed will now be located at the edges of the gully rather than within it and only a very small number of mature trees will be directly affected. The small gully in South Auckland called Grahams Bush known as is a botanical gem, a real taonga, a fragment of the lowland podocarp-broadleaf forest that once covered the Manukau lowlands has been saved! The Tree Council would like to thank all those who donated money to support their case, fellow appeal parties, the Cheesman family and Auckland Transport for being willing to negotiate a much better ecological outcome for Graham’s Bush. Well done everyone!

  • Christchurch City Council - Block the Offer - Continue to say no to deep sea oil drilling
    The outcome of this campaign was absolutely incredible. Not only is the Christchurch City Council dedicated to blocking the offer and stopping deep sea oil drilling off the Canterbury coastline, they have shown interest in taking further action than only writing a submission. Having a huge backing strongly contributed to the opinions that were voiced at the council meeting, and overall had a massive influence on the Block the Offer campaign!
