Pinus radiata has been known to spread rapidly into bushland areas. These trees provide little in the way of food or shelter for the native wildlife. Because the leaves or needles that collect under the trees are highly acidic they inhibit the growth of native vegetation. Wildcare Deslacs has been removing mature trees and seedlings from the Cape Deslacs Nature Reserve.
