“Intentional damage is a crime and punishable by a large fine or imprisonment,” Senior Constable Bruce Miller wrote.

“If sufficient evidence exists I will be happy to charge any offender for this gutless act. Not only has it damaged the trees it has also put students in danger of touching the poison used in the holes.”

Letter to the editor

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter on behalf of the students at Napier Central School to inform you about a tragedy that has happened in our school.

Eight of our school’s precious trees have been poisoned.

Holes were drilled into them and the poison was poured into the holes.

These trees are over 60 years old and about 12 metres tall. They provide shade and as we only have a restricted amount of trees at our school this is vital.
