Nelson Leader : April 18th 2013
4 THE NELSON LEADER, APRIL 18, 2013 PHOTOS Does your community group need help with funding? The Car Company's $10000 Charity Drive recently caught up with Brad Cadwallader from The New Zealand Notable Tree Trust at Melrose House, home of the current NZ Champion Tree -- a Coastal Redwood, its girth measuring a whopping 863cm and standing 48.4 metres tall. Another notable tree in our area is New Zealand's 2nd largest Coastal Redwood located on the O'Beirne farm at Wakapuaka, standing at 60 metres. New Zealand Notable Tree Trust maintains a register that centralises historic, significant tree data from all around the country. Trees don't have to be of historic value to be on the register. It could be a tree planted by a family member to mark an historic or significant event. Anyone can nominate a significant tree by logging onto the register and recording the history of their tree. The Nelson/Tasman area has thousands of notable trees but there are only about 400 currently on the register. In 2008 Nelson lost a number of significant trees including the world's largest Tory Pine from Isle Park. The last time it had been measured was 1983; sadly no one thought to grab a tape measure when it fell. NZTT's application for funding if successful would assist the trust in administering the register, researching and recording more trees and would mean that it could engage a landscape historian to complete an article on the introduction of European trees to the district. Trees hold historic value to people all around the world> Go online and record trees that are special to you, learn about trees in your area and understand why they are significant.
