Grey Base pohutakawa pruning to take place

Published: Tue 13 Mar 2018 11:38 AM
A tree expert has advised the West Coast DHB that the large pohutakawa on the north-eastern side of the Corporate block in Greymouth has been damaged and will need some serious pruning to make it safe.
“People will notice has fencing around the tree, which sits adjacent to the Grey Hospital car park near the new buildings,” West Coast DHB Maintenance Manager Craig Shaw says.
“After receiving advice that the tree might pose a threat to human life, we’re looking into what, when, how much pruning, and the permissions we might need to get before essential pruning takes place to make the tree safe. In the meantime, it has been fenced off. We are aware of the importance and significance of this tree and any remedial work will be done as carefully as possible, whist maintaining an ongoing safe environment,” he says.
