Western Springs pine trees removal delayed again

Auckland Council has again delayed its plan to use emergency powers to cut down 13 pine trees in Western Springs.

The council said the trees posed a safety risk because they were dead or dying, but residents say the council is bypassing due process.

Another meeting is planned for Monday and the council said it hoped to come to an agreement with the residents then.

An independent arborist representing the residents has already met with the council to discuss the issues.

The council said it was working in good faith with the residents to come to an agreement.
