Weedbuster Type: Group
Contact Person: Ian Price
Forest and Bird are still very active in weed management at their ecological restoration of Paremata Flat Reserve north of Nelson. We have planted just under 36,000 trees these past three years, and incorporated into the planting programme is an intensive weed management programme involving grid searching the planted area three times a year and destroying the weeds we find - old man’s beard, barberry, blackberry, and other nasties. We highlight our grid search timetable on our website at www.paremataflats.co.nz.
