General Notes:

An open grown, round-crowned specimen (VanWijngaarden 2011).

'Unitec was founded as "Carrington Technical Institute" in 1976 on the Mt Albert site on Carrington Rd, which has 55 hectares of grounds. The area on which Unitec's main campus is located was formerly home to the Whau Mental Hospital, later known as Carrington Hospital. The hospital building, an imposing brick Italianate-Romanesque structure, is located at the northern end of the Unitec campus. The hospital building was the largest building in New Zealand when it was built in the 1860s. The hospital was decommissioned during the early 1990s, and the building is now part of Unitec'. ref; Wikipedia
