Please join The Tree Council for its Annual General Meeting followed by a free lecture. Trees are an important part of Auckland’s heritage, but they are under threat.

What’s the status of trees in Auckland? Do we have a clear understanding of the value of trees to people and biodiversity? Come along to hear Dr Margaret Stanley discuss the benefits of trees and other nature living here in our city and how we ensure its future survival. All are welcome, free event, refreshments provided. Koha to cover venue hire appreciated.
