Camphor Tree

Peace City Site:

This Camphor tree, planted by Deputy Mayor Carole Evans on 21 September 2007, is a second generation cutting from a tree which survived the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. The original cutting was gifted to Christchurch by the Mayor of Nagasaki during a visit to Christchurch in 2003.

Cuttings from this tree have since been propagated and have been gifted to Auckland, Wellington, Southern Wairarapa and Palmerston North.
