Sad day for Tāne Forest

At the end of term 2 our Kapa Haka group, staff and students who had helped to save the Tairere trees in Tāne Forest shared a karakia  and waiata led by Matua Jason (Tuhaka) and Anthony (Keung) to honour the trees before they are felled later this term. These trees have been affected by the dry conditions experienced in Auckland and the lowering of the water table caused by new building developments over recent years.

The area cannot be used for Health and Safety reasons until, the dead trees are removed.
