ABC Wednesday: Letter X

X trees doomed to be chopped down.

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.

I hope they can find a way to save the tree. Realistically, it's tough winning against developers.

Merry Christmas, Ann!

This is sad. Cutting trees almost feels like taking the life of a living being. I hope this one doesn't die.
