Look out for the yellow flowers

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:26 pm on 18 December 2017

A Yellow Pōhutukawa in Mangere will continue to flower after it was spotted by a passerby who stopped it from being removed.

The Tree Council is now calling on others in Auckland to get in touch if they suspect they have one in their garden or neighbourhood.

Dr Mels Barton, the Tree Council secretary tells us why they're looking for more of these trees.
