So todays image is what One Tree Hill now looks like (minus the one tree!). There have been a number of illegal replantings of trees on the summit, removed by the local council. It is said that when Treaty claims are finalised, or when local council and Iwi (loosely the Maori group of the area) come to an agreement, we may once again see a tree on the summit.
For now however, we still have the tall obelisk where Sir Campbell is buried.
Although I didn’t grab any shots from the summit on this visit, the view is spectacular from the top. 360 degree all around Auckland!
