New Roadside trees for Matangi? Crepe Mrytle, Kowhai, Mountain Haze cherry, Taiwan Cherry or the same tree as we have now? Have your say.

The Matangi Community Committee and the Waikato District Council are working together to decide what to do about replacing the cherry trees in the village on Matangi Road, most of which have come to the end of their natural lives.

The suggested choices have been approved by Council as appropriate for the location. There is some information on them within the survey but further information can be found via online search or provided on request. Council arborist, Kevin Gordon will also be available to discuss the options at a drop in at the Matangi Hall, 478 Tauwhare Road on Wednesday April 27, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

We are seeking feedback from Matangi residents, particularly those people who live/own property on the section of Matangi Road where the trees could be planted – from the intersection of Matangi and Tauwhare Roads up to the end of the group of houses at Winning Way as these will be the people who will be able to help take care of any trees planted.

Please complete and submit/return your questionnaire by 6.00 p.m. Sunday, May 8, using the link:

The survey results will be reported to the next Matangi Community Committee meeting on 17 May.

Any queries / comments can be sent to matangicommunityc@gmail.com .
