Tihi Road Reserve

Tihi Road Reserve is unique in Rotorua as it is planted as an urban woodlot using a planting plan developed in 1990. Council would like to review this Plan to ensure that future works and management reflects the values of the surrounding community and how people want to use the reserve.

During the last few months, you may have noticed that Council undertook some urgent work on the reserve following discussion with residents, concerned over the height and shading of their properties by trees. This involved topping and removing some of the larger trees impacting on residents of Day Place at the southern end of the reserve. To more effectively resolve this issue trees will need to be removed and replanting will need to take place. To minimize the ongoing impacts of this work Council need to ensure a comprehensive plan is in place.


Thanks for all your responses and ideas. We have had a fantastic response. We'll be back shortly with an update and a collation of all the feedback!

    Considering that the reserve is currently a popular off leash dog walking area and offers plenty “free play” areas for children...

    What ideas do you have for the future of the reserve?
