Gorse Removal Lenah Valley

Wellington Park Bushcare Group

Gorse Removal Lenah Valley Entrance at Wellington Park on Tuesday 4 Mar 08

Continued primary action on the Gorse remaining in the far northern corner of the park boundary was the focus for the work and a considerable amount was removed. The area is just above that which was subject to our previous Envirofund project and now clears the outskirts of most of the Gorse. A small patch still remains closer to the boundary plus a patch higher on the hill.

Some seedling regrowth was noted in the area of the Envirofund work, but this was hardly unexpected.

Mt Hull Erica Removal

Wellington Park Bushcare Group

Erica Removal Hull Site at Wellington Park on Tuesday 5 Feb 08

Erica at a water hole north of the Mt Hull Fire Trail junction with East West was cleared, but one area comprised many small plants that were tedious to remove by hand. Spraying would have been more efficient, but as we had sufficient numbers it did not overly long to clear.

On completion we moved to the above-mentioned junction to do follow up work on Erica in the bush and beside the trail between the locations. It has been 5 years since first clearing the site and many significantly sized bushes were noticed in the bush. All these were removed, plus most near the fire trail junctions, but some lower on the Mt Hull FT had to be left.

The day was not overly hot, but nevertheless quite warm with a high cloud cover, and we did notice several snakes, including three whip snakes in a group close to the work site.

Erica Follow-up Envirofund Site Main Fire Trail at Wellington Park on Tuesday 8 Jan 08

We had a good turnout and did follow up work on our first Envirofund grant site on the Main Fire Trail where Gorse and Erica seedlings and regrowths along the southern boundary of the park were removed. The group was split with some clearing Erica and thistles on the lower side boundary of the fire break.

Thanks to Mike and Blane for organising the work bee tasks on the day.
