managing trees responsibly to build resilient communities
Trees provide a number of benefits for our city both from an environmental and social perspective. Managing trees is a community responsibility and by working together, we can help prevent power outages and keep the community safe.
In April 2018, over 200,000 homes and businesses lost power, some for up to 11 days, when trees were blown onto power lines by winds reaching up to 215km/h. At Muriwai, a falling tree narrowly missed a repair crew and destroyed the work they had just completed.
