A notable pōhutukawa tree in central Auckland has been saved from being chopped down, after an agreement between the council and the landowner was made, Stuff reports. The tree, located on Eglington Ave in Mount Eden, faced demolition after not being transferred across to the Unitary Plan in 2016 when the councils merged. Following legal action due to Auckland Council’s mistake, both the council and the landowner have ensured the tree will be retained.
