ABC Wednesday: Letter X
Photos from Stuff NZ.
Land developer had been wanting to fell this 300 Kauri tree.
This is terrible, security guards, cutting the tree with chainsaws while a protester was still in it. Ring barking, also called girdling, is the process of removing bark in a circle around the base of the tree which often causes it to die - usually within a year.
The Save our Kauri group said neighbours tried to stop the men but were too late to stop them ring barking the tree.
