Chilean Flame Creeper control at Bowmans Bush
The annual attack on the persistant weed, Chilean Flame Creeper (CFC) is lead by the Otatara Landcare Group. Good progress has been made over the decade that this one evening a year of pulling the CFC off the native plants has been undertaken, showing that persistence in physical removal can pay dividends. The reduction in light gaps as the natives form a more dense canopy is the other factor that reduces the pest plant’s establishment. To join this year’s working bee, come along to Bowmans Bush on Ruru Ave from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. For further information contact OLG member, Randall Milne, 213 0851.
