The iconic ivi tree in the heart of Suva City has suffered damages due to TC Ana.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says this is one beloved icon we cannot rebuild, with a history we will never replace.
Bainimarama says the tree has stood long before Suva was ever Suva adding it has seen Suva grow from a sleepy colonial outpost into the seat of government of an independent Fiji and the hub of the South Pacific.
He adds that, with proper care, the tree may sprout to its former glory.
Bainimarama says with their commitment to plant 30 million trees, he knows Fijians will grow many more living landmarks that lend us shade, clean our air, beautify our country, and keep our bond with nature strong.
