The base track on Mauao will be closed to the public tomorrow.
Tauranga City Council says the track will be closed from 7.30am to midday.
"This closure is to ensure public safety while we prune a damaged Pohutukawa tree which is close to the track," says a council spokesperson.
"Signage and barriers will be in place at all closure points.
"For questions please contact Josh Clark, Mauao Ranger on 07 577 7000."
