Four questions for you this morning:
  • Given that a man has been jailed last year for offending the state religion cutting down his own trees on his own property, and that yesterday a man was fined $100,000 after abasing himself before a room full of harpies for the same 'crime,' will you be planting any new trees on your own property any time soon?
  • When you see one of your trees reaching the six-metre mark which makes it protected, will you be giving it a severe prune before it gets there?
  • Do you think it a coincidence that the number of large native trees bought and planted by property owners since the RMA was introduced is less than it was before its introduction?
  • Do you think this might be an example of the 'unintended consequences' of legislation?
