Cartoon - Mander Park Trees

This Cartoon, Drawn by Steve Pike, was drawn on the 4th of May 2012.  Not long after a large section of Mander Park Trees in Whangarei were cut down.  The Trees that were cut down, some had been in that park for over 100 years, and some were natives to New Zealand, but NZTA wanted this section of the park for a left hand turn lane.

His Cartoon this time points out how, as New Zealanders, we are ok with some progress but not all progress.  It also highlights the importance of heritage to Northland culture.
