Event details

Join the Tree Council for its AGM and free lecture.

Trees are an important part of our heritage, but they are under threat. Planted by settlers, they tell stories of early Aucklanders, giving insight into their values, where they came from, who they traded with, and their status.

Often the trees are all that remains to mark original homesteads and land layout.

What's the status of trees in Auckland? Do we have a clear understanding of their value to people and biodiversity?

Dr Margaret Stanley (Associate Professor of Ecology at the University of Auckland) will discuss the benefits of trees in our city, and how we can ensure their survival.

All welcome, refreshments provided. Koha to cover venue hire appreciated.
