Through fantastic efficiency by Council bushland management in administering NSW Environmental Trust grant funds, we have been able to reallocate a large amount to removal of Pine trees from the bushland section of Memorial Park. This is part of the direct catchment into Popes Glen Creek and reserve and a constant problem as a source of weed propagules.
Council has employed experienced contractors to do the job and one area is now cleared of Pines, holly, cotoneaster and other woody weeds. After further evaluation, the next step will be to allow some natural regeneration from the existing native seed-bank and then intervene as necessary with further weeding and planting if needed.
