kahikitea gone

A really sad day today to see the most beautiful tree laying down to rest for the progress of the Expressway [to Otaki]. Every day I pass this tree and admire its beauty. This kahikatea has been standing here for over 300 years I have been passing it for over 40 years…. now it’s gone along with her sister trees next to her. I will be following her journey as to what she will now become…. something amazing and gorgeous…hopefully. (Angela Buswell)
