Mass tree felling blindsides visitors to North Canterbury walking track

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A popular area of Waimakariri’s regional park has been cleared of trees, upsetting visitors to North Canterbury’s Ashley/Rakahuri River who knew nothing of the plan.

The regional council undertook the work, and Waimakariri District Council mayor Dan Gordon said the first he knew of it was once the trees had been chopped down.

However, ECan regional lead river engineer Shaun McCracken said the district council had been informed, although there had been no public notification or consultation because it was routine work. The tree-felling would “improve the resilience of Rangiora and Kaiapoi to the threat of flooding from the Ashley River’’, he said.
