Where have all the trees gone?

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:26 pm on 29 October 2018

Ecologist Margaret Stanley says the equivalent of 61 rugby fields full of trees have been cut down in inner city Auckland and surrounding suburbs between 2006-2016.

Dr Stanley says even more will have been cut down in the past two years. She says the loss of at least 12, 879 trees is death by a thousand cuts to the health of Auckland city ecology.
