But it’s going to cost them nearly $2000 to do it. The Harewood residents can now apply for resource consent to have the six 16m trees removed after their request was approved by the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board. However, they will have to foot the $1800 bill for the process, which is required as the trees are protected by the city council. There is no guarantee it will be successful. Shortly after Mr and Mrs Barber moved into their Cam Pl property in 1983, the city council planted the trees in Pasadena Reserve, which block the sun. City council head of resource consents John Higgins said the $1800 fee is only a deposit. “The final fees are the actual costs of processing [the removal] so there is potentially a refund or a further invoice.” •Turn to page 4 Can you spot the difference?
