Transplanting Flaxes/Removing Large Privet trees

Sunday 15 May – 2 hours was spent splitting flaxes which had been donated by Sue Haigh  and planting them on the Carlyons property, along with some sedges.  The pratia angulata is looking very healthy, however, a number of weeds have become established within these plants and it was rather time-consuming digging them out.

On Thursday, 19 May and Friday 19 May, Cam spent several hours clearing weeds on the Harvey’s property (mainly chainsawing and pasting privet along the stream edges).  He said he had never seen such large privet trees.  The area has been opened up and will need to be planted as soon as possible before other weeds become established.
