Now you see it, now you don't

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we had to have our Elm tree removed as it had succumbed to Dutch Elm disease. This magnificent tree has given us so much shade and so much climbing pleasure over the years. BDK will not be the same without it.

  1. So sad, it looks so empty. Denan just said he misses his lovely sandpit tree!

  2. Wow, it sure looks different! It was such an amazing tree, Dylan had his last climb in it on Tuesday night and Ella gave it a hug. Isn't funny how even a tree can make impact on your life,

  3. A sad end of an era but also the beginning of an exciting new one. Mother Nature has a strange way of working. Looking forward to seeing how the environment evolves. Noho kaiako kaha , me ngā tamariki .

  6. So sad for BDK that our very much loved tree has had to go but once again the community has "rallied" with an offer of another tree. The circle of life ......
