Tauranga's Aspen Tree (c1976).


The so-called ‘aspen tree’ (actually a cottonwood poplar Populus deltoides) on the corner of McLean and Willow Streets undergoing tree surgery. Photo taken looking westwards up McLean Street towards Willow Street and the Old Tauranga Post Office. Photo possibly taken October 1976. On 13 October an American tree surgeon Robert Mazany had climbed into the tree to cut out dead wood and surplus branches (see BOP Times 13/10/1976). Tauranga City Libraries Image Number: 10-075.
