Tree lovers in Kaipara are being encouraged to nominate a tree for addition to the notable tree schedule of the Kaipara District Plan.
A review of the existing list of notable trees in the plan is needed and Council wants to know which special trees, in public spaces, should be added. Nominations close in June.
Notable trees often have historic, scenic or scientific significance that warrant protection.
Nominated trees will be assessed by a qualified arborist using the Standard Tree Evaluation Method (STEM) developed by Ron Flook in 1996.
Not all nominated trees will be added to the schedule.
When nominating a tree, the following details should be included • Location of the tree with a specific address if possible • A photo of the tree or stand of trees • Type of tree (e.g. pōhutukawa, rimu or oak) • The age of the tree (if known) • Reasons for nomination.
Nominations should be emailed to email@example.com before June 23.
