Save oUr Native Forest

Gael from Westmere

There's a native forest beneath the canopy of Western Springs that will be destroyed if Council have their way. Experts have proved that only a wee bit of maintenance is required to get it safe but Auckland Council have not done that since the damage from the 10 April 2018 storm but have instead kept the forest path closed in a hope that this propaganda will convince you otherwise. All that's required is some work to about a dozen trees and it will be as safe as houses.
Their planned destruction is now just about them winning, IMO. This will cost over $760,000 (according to WLB agenda for Tuesday's public meeting) to leave the area without bird habitat for over 50 years. Currently this is the homeof numerous bird species - tui, fantail, morepork, kingfisher, rosella, thrush, blackbird, waxeyes, shags, herons and visits from royal spoonbills and possibly kaka. The plan is to fell and leave 218 trees of about 40 metres on site. Leaving a fire hazard, an eyesore and little room to plant IMO.
The plan shown is an accurate plan of the carnage that will be caused by 'clear felling'
Help us stop this waste of public money and unnecessary destruction by signing, please.
