Two Monterey Pines were deconstructed Sunday 19th June 2016.
Originally the Auckland Council planned to fell all 11 pines but after community feedback this was reduced to just two dead/dangerous trees. The remaining trees will be monitored for safety.
The pines are a landmark and can be seen for miles in some approaches to Blockhouse Bay.
