Erica Removal Goat Hills

Chapel site 1

Tuesday 5 Aug 08

The work involved continuing to remove the juvenile Erica growing the area bounded by Chapel, Goat and Montrose Fire Trails and forming fire compartment 4.

The area is taking a considerable effort with working bees in Dec 2006, June 2007 and June 2008 prior to this one. This site was cleared by cut and paste during 2003 and then subjected to a management burn in late 2003 or early 2004 and this resulted in heavy seedlings volumes particularly near old cut and pasted bushes.
