A "phenomenal" number  of trees are proposed to be planted within the Threepwood cottages section to replace the "six or seven" trees and shrubs felled in 2005, independent commissioners heard in Queenstown yesterday.
Landscape architect Alan Cutler made the comment during a hearing held by commissioners John Matthews and Cath Gilmour.
The hearing aimed to understand the reasons behind Meadow 3 Ltd's four applications to adapt the historic homestead and woolshed on the rural shore of Lake Hayes into luxury visitor accommodation while remedying past tree felling that the Environment Court ruled had breached land-use consent in 2007.
