What injustice did Treelords remedy?

The so called Treelords deal was the biggest ever struck in the Treaty settlements process so far, at a time when Labour is desperate for the Maori vote. So what exactly were the injustices that Treelords ostensibly remedied, since neither Treaty Minister Michael Cullen nor chief iwi negotiator Tumu te Heuheu had specified these in their speeches celebrating the deal, and why were Minister Parekura Horomia and the Waitangi Tribunal so reluctant to answer questions on the matter?  Lindsay Perigo isn't the only one who would like to know.
