A helicopter will be used because it isn’t practical to remove it from the location marked X in any other way. The log will be lifted and processed on the ridgeline of Te Ahumairangi Hill. Work will be carried out by contractors, Treescape. This is scheduled to start on Wednesday 22 and expected to take two days, weather permitting. Work hours will be 8am to 5pm. The log will be prepped for lifting on the Wednesday and lifted out on the Thursday.

Roads will remain open with traffic management in place but there may be delays at times. For safety reasons, the walking tracks around this site will be closed for the duration of the project. The work will be noisy at times
