The One Tree Hill Action -

NZ Herald, Tuesday, August 4, 1998 A3

     

  The One Tree Hill Action was very successful. Early on Monday morning, the first day of conservation week, a small group of NFA members from all over the country hung a banner from the top of the pine on Auckland's landmark One Tree Hill in a peaceful but powerful protest.

The object was to call the public's attention to the logging of NZ's native forests. The site was chosen to highlight the tokenism that characterises the present government's attitude towards conservation. Since the pine was damaged four years ago, an extraordinary effort has been made to save the old pine. The point we are making is that while spending vast amounts of time and money saving a 100 year old exotic pine, thousands and thousands of ancient native trees are being destroyed...Hypocrisy ?

The caption reads: "A protest banner hangs from the famous pine on Auckland's One Tree Hill. Its message, from a conservation group Native Forest Action, calls on the Government to stop logging native forests on the South Island's West Coast. Four years ago the tree was attacked in a different protest.
