The Auckland Volcanic Field comprises over 50 volcanoes, with the earliest eruption (Onepoto) about 250,000 years ago, and the most recent one (Rangitoto) about 600 years ago. Most appear as hills, but some of them are under water as lagoon or lake – and some buried beneath volcanic ash. The eruption of One Tree Hill, shown here, is not dated precisely, but thought to go back at least 28,000 years. With its obelisk, One Tree Hill is a well loved landmark, visible from many places, also a great lookout when you are on top. You can read about the “one” tree (which is not there any more) in wikipedia, and a picture is here.
