Our Tree work

Our arborists (kaitiaki rākau) are the parents, doctors, nurses and artists of the tree world. They give trees regular health check-ups, fix them when they’re damaged or unhealthy, perform surgery when needed (i.e. pruning) and ensure they are safe to be around. Throughout the year you will see our arborists at work, this includes felling trees occasionally. Please be assured trees will only be felled when absolutely necessary for your safety. We plant 80–100 trees each year to replace any trees that have reached the end of their life-cycle, or as part of new designs or developments, or to assist with a healthy ecosystem.

Visit our See & Do section to find out more about our trees.

Our Grotto - closed

Our Grotto area in the South East area of the park is temporarily closed due to a dangerous pine tree which is being attended to. The area is taped off and we ask that you do not enter the area while it is closed.
