Another Auckland suburb has come under fire for unattractive tree pruning.
Waterview’s Alford St made headlines last week after residents complained the trees had been cut into unsightly V-shapes by Auckland Council contractor Treescape.
Doria Johnson, who lives on Scott Rd in Papakura, said the trees on her road have had the same treatment, from the same contractor.
Every single tree has been cut down the middle to avoid the power lines, she said.
“It’s not just my tree, it's the entire street ... It looks like a nightmare, it's disgusting.”

I hope everyone is aware that today the Auckland Council has begun the total destruction of the Western Springs Forest by clear felling everything. This includes the regenerating native plants understorey. They started by cutting the surrounding native trees on the outskirts to put in a approximately 5 metre road across the whole site. The contractors will be back on Monday. Please go and see for yourself what is happening and if you don’t like what you see make your protest known.
