ARATONGA AVENUE KAURIS. ONE TREE HILL ARBOR DAY. About 1000 years hence future New Zea landers will walk along Ara tonga Avenue, One Tree Hill, gaze up to the sky and way, "Well, Mr. W. 0. Mulholland's kauri is sprouting well," or. "Mr. I. J. Goldstine's tree is going places." That will be the result of a decision reached at last night's meeting of the One Tree Hill Borough Council, when Mr. Mulholland brought forward a suggestion to plant 28 kauri trees in that avenue on Arbor Day. Trees will be planted by the Mayor and Mayoress, the deputy-Mayor and his wife, each of the councillors and the town clerk, and local body and school representatives of the district. Mr. Mulholland said the trees would be a useful and decided addition to the avenue. They would not grow fast enough to interfere v/ith the power wires. "By the time they reach that height, power wires will be underground," said Mr. Mulholland. "So will we!" said the Mayor, Mr. I. J. Goldstine, amid laughter. Mr. M. J. Hooper said that care should be taken iiot to plant them near the water mains. The suggestion was adopted by the council.
