Cathedral Square Tree Being Removed Today

One of the 89-year-old lime trees in Cathedral Square which surround the statue of Christchurch’s founder John Robert Godley is being removed today (19 November).

The 20-metre tall tree went into serious decline last year and has died, says City Council Acting Transport and Greenspace Manager Malcolm Park.

“The lime is a notable tree within the City Plan and will be replaced next May-June.”

He says Council is currently working to source the largest tree possible to replace the lime.
