Opoutere Ratepayers & Residents Association Inc
Weedbuster Type: Group

Contact Person: Victoria Spence
Opoutere Ratepayers and Residents Association (ORRA to our friends!) has historically been proactive in removing weeds in our community and has over the years waged war against jasmine, ginger, privet, elaeagnus, agapanthus…the list goes on.
We regularly apply for funding to engage contractors to help us get rid of these pests but we also have working bees to try to engage the community in the work. We have a huge elaeagnus plantation in some bush on the side of our summit, Maungaruawahine, which is of great concern as it’s threatening over an acre of native bush. More sessions with chainsaws and herbicide gel feature on the horizon…
