Tree Felling at Opua Road, Ōpunakē

Three men standing amongst dense bush as they pose with axes in front of partially-felled trees. The man on the left is standing with his axe sitting in a large wedge cut out of a tree trunk, and is wearing a light long-sleeved shirt with trousers and suspenders, boots and a hat. The man next to him has his hand on the base of the wedge, and is wearing a formal shirt, waistcoat with fob watch and jacket with trousers, boots and a hat. The man on the right also has his axe sitting in a wedge in the trunk of a smaller tree. He is wearing a light short-sleeved shirt and trousers, boots and a cap. The foreground is littered with fallen branches, vines, and what appear to be nīkau palm leaves.
