To get the trees on your property
back down to a safe and
manageable state, call Russell
Price at Down 2 Earth.
Russell has 20 years of working with trees, and over the past 12
years has earned his tree care business such a solid reputation
that much of his work comes from repeat clients, including
leading Hawke s Bay real estate agencies and retirement
Down 2 Earth is not a franchise business: it is a locally owned
and operated two-man operation that can do anything in your
"We o er a complete service from thinning, shaping,
topping and removing trees of any size, down to grinding
stumps and hedge trimming.
"If you have something you want done in your garden, from
pruning a rose to taking out an entire tree, we can do the whole lot!" Russell says.
As his business name suggests, Russell prides himself on no-nonsense dealings with his valued customers.
"We are prompt and arrive when we say we will, and when the job is nished we leave the site clean - right down to mowing the lawn.
That way the job is complete and everyone is happy.
"We o er a chipping service for green waste whether you have completed the job yourself and just want us to come in and remove the
waste, or we can do the full job. Or, we can leave the chip for you to use as mulch on your garden..
Down 2 Earth has full public liability insurance and Russell can even give you advice on what should be planted in your garden to reduce
the amount of future work required. This has been evident in placings from the Napier City Council garden competitions for the last two
years for Russell s own personal gardens.
Be aware the recent summer rains are sure to cause an explosion of growth in your garden soon, which could result in limbs and branches
overhanging your guttering, potentially causing future damage to your roof.
The longer you leave it, the more expensive the problems will become, so call Russell at Down 2 Earth today
on 027 243 2166 or (06) 844 3365, or email firstname.lastname@example.org

iWay projects finalists
Three Hastings District Council
iWay walking and cycling projects
are finalists in the Cycle
Advocates Network, 2012 Cycle
The iWay project began in 2010
when the council beat 22
challengers to win $4.1 million
from the Governments Model
Communities project to promote
walking and cycling around Hast-
The three finalists are the iWay
Cycle Lanes, the iWay Share the
Road Campaign and the iWay
Prison Bike Recycling Scheme.
The iWay project has also been
nominated for the new Walking
and Cycling project award.
Deputy Mayor Cynthia Bowers
says the iWay project has brought
major benefits to the community.
We are seeing more people get-
ting back on their bikes and
enjoying the great outdoors in an
easy safe and fun way.
Longer parking time
Readers in Havelock North now
have two hours to choose their
books, after the Hastings Dis-
trict Council increased parking
times outside the town s library
from 60 minutes to 120.
Council spokesman Ross Hol-
den said the change would also
meetings or functions.
Swimmers were also getting
longer times, with slots outside
Havelock North Swimming
Pool raised to 120 minutes.
Early birds: By 9am on Friday, Hastings book lovers were out in force picking over books culled from Hastings'
libraries' collections, paying $1 for books and 50 cents for magazines. The sale was run by Hastings' Friends of
the Library. President Shirley Wilson said funds raised from the sales were used to buy incidentals for the libraries,
including mats, chairs, tables or shelving. A sale run in November raised $550, with this one expected to raise
about twice that much. Another was planned for March, said Mrs Wilson. As well as raising funds, clearing out old
books made room for new titles, Hastings District Council's libraries manager Paula Murdoch said.
