Rotary is pleased to assist with the selection and planting of these new trees because we planted the original trees in 1973.
We were disappointed that the original trees needed to be replaced because of the upgrade the water main in Napier Road.
The new trees on Napier road are one of the many Rotary projects that improve the environment of Havelock North.
It is pleasing to see the Hastings District Council infrastructure improvements will now include the new Bradford Pear trees.
Peter Longstaff and Ewan Wallace (who were present at the first planting in 1973) joined us for the tree planting.
Rotary helped choose the Bradford Pear species to replace the original trees. Rotary, Hastings District Council, and a band of volunteers planted the new trees today.
The Bradford Pear has a “pyramid” shape with densely packed branches that features a profusion of early spring blossom, with leaves that turn red, orange and maroon in Autumn.
The tree planting today was a reinvigoration of the 1973 project and we thank all those who helped.
