One Tree, None Tree, One Tree, None Tree Hill

Orkland's "One Tree Hill" epitomises the glacial progress that is local body politics in NZ's Big Smoke. Unknown terrorists planted a pohutakawa tree on that hill in the weekend, with a note stating "One Nation." The offending tree will be removed by council workers this week.

For five years One Tree Hill has been a misnomer. Council, not wishing to rush things, hope to have an official tree (two trees, three trees, more) planted later in the year.
