Tree Information x

Identifier: TSR/0686
Tree Type: Single
Registered By: Cadwallader, BG
Registration Category: Notable tree/s – Local interest
General Notes:

An outstanding tree that was initially thought to be a single-stemmed specimen. Subsequent inspection has found the tree to have two, perhaps 3 fused stems. Located well off the beaten track, the tree is likely to have been planted at the same time as the Totaranui Avenue trees 8km to the north of here. Locals suggest the Strauss family owned land at this location around the turn of the century (Cadwallader, BG 2008).
