disappointing to see that last remaining tree adjacent to Café Jireh/RSA taken
out. It afforded shade and greenery, now just open space and hot, hot,
hot! Those three Toa trees next to CITC
main store facing the Lotto shop have recently been ‘trimmed’ – hard to find an

being threatened by development – beautiful grand old tree, but sadly in the
wrong place at the wrong time. Perhaps an EIA (Environment Impact Assessment)
could save it as its removal would have a major impact on our environment,
especially from a historical, visual and shade perspective.
anyone really care about the visual beauty of Rarotonga? It would seem ‘no’ is

are not the answer.

visitors who dump rubbish when clearly it is the locals.
should be fines for dumping bottles, tyres and nappies etc on our beaches. Have
