Mark Belton - Saving Christchurch Trees

From Sunday Morning, 7:47 am on 7 February 2016

A group of Christchurch residents is working to save over 80 percent of Christchurch's scheduled heritage and notable trees from being delisted and losing any protection in the city's plan. They are raising money for a legal challenge to the proposal, which is being fast-tracked under Earthquake Recovery legislation. Mark Belton is a professional forester and advocate for heritage trees - he says Christchurch has the greatest variety of trees of any city on the planet.
