Nominations sought for "notable trees" in Far North

Urban communities in the Far North are being invited to nominate trees worthy of protection which residents believe should be added to the District Plan Schedule of Notable Trees.

The Far North District Council move follows Resource Management Act changes which will impact on the vegetation clearance rules currently in the District Plan. The changes in the legislation, which take effect from 01 January next year, have implications for all councils across New Zealand.

From next year trees in urban areas will only have protection if they are located on reserves, are individually listed in a District Plan, or are protected by means of a caveat on land titles.

However the Act has defined a new set of standards for qualification as an urban area. Nominations are restricted to urban sites of less than 4000sq.metres which have reticulated water and sewerage service and which contain a building. Trees which do not meet the location qualification or where a nomination is made without the owner's consent will not be considered for protection.

In addition the trees must have ecological benefits, contribute to the landscape, have landmark value, visual amenity value, are a rare species, or have outstanding botanical values. The size and age of trees will also be considerations.

There will be a $120 nomination fee per tree to offset the cost of engaging qualified professionals to carry out assessments on each nominated tree.

Nominations for the Schedule of Notable Trees in urban areas will open on 24 May and close on 10 June 2011. Nomination forms are available at council service centres and public libraries.

thomas sabo :I receive more compliments on this ring! I love the style, fit and sparkle! Just a lovely ring. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes inexpensive 'bling'. For the money, this is a gorgeous ring. Each of the three stones is slightly different in size--I was surprised at that--but the overall sparkle and quality of the ring are good. I give this a ring-finger up! I bought this ring for my wife as a little joke because she lost one of the diamonds out of her wedding ring. She has been saying she will take it in to the jeweler to have the stone replaced for months now. She still wears a band that I bought her but her finger looks so bare without her wedding ring. I am going to sneak it out of her jewelry box and have it repaired for Christmas. I saw this product and thought it would be a fun little substitute while her wedding ring is in limbo. This ring isn't meant to fool anyone which is a good thing as it is not likely to. Also, the band began to tarnish after a few days of wear (also not a big deal but thought it was worth mentioning for the review). All in all I would say it is worth what I paid for it and is about what I expected for the price.

MCITP
To become a MCITP first you need a superior and broad knowledge in this field with one year of practical experience. Second you require MCTS Certification. You can say that MCTS is the first step and also acts as a ladder for obtaining MCITP.

For those of us with Suzuki Outboards Sale a reasonable fear of the ocean, this is a worst case scenario: Last week, Dan Suski, 30, and his sister Kate Suski, 39, chartered a fishing boat in St. Lucia.

They were battling the giant fish when water rushed onto the boat and flooded its engine room. As the captain radioed for help, another surge Yamaha 4 Stroke Outboard of water swamped the boat.

They kept swimming, Yamaha outboards Sale finally finding a small stretch of sand. Once ashore, they collapsed before again going into survival mode to avoid hypothermia.
