Native tree protest continues as man creates suspended platform

Melanie Earley Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours, a man protesting against the removal of native trees in Avondale has created a suspended platform in the hopes police won’t be able to remove him.
Arborist Zane Wedding, is currently dangling below a puriri tree on Canal Road. Wedding said his new platform would make it harder for him to be removed than previous activists arrested during the 49-day occupation.

Do you support the occupation?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.
