    Story of "One Hill Tree"

    by SLLiew Written Oct 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: No, it is not about a tv drama series.

    One hill tree is popular historic landmark of Auckland on top of a small volcanic peak. There was a single tree next to a commemorative obelisk. The tree was attacked twice in the name of Maori struggle of their natural rights but fortunately survived the onslaught.

    Unfortunately after a damaging storm, the 125 years pine tree had to be removed.

    A new native tree has been planted.
