Removing a Dominator
From Wellington Bushcare
We have been removing Gorse beside the Inglewood fire break easements for 8 years. Gorse is a dreadful prickly weed that completely dominates the ground once it gets established and we hate it. In the areas where it has been removed the native vegetation has staged a comeback.
A thick patch was cleared this month and whist some of bushes were large an equal number were small and spindly and they consume a lot of effort without the pleasure of seeing the big change that the removing the monsters gives.
One of our tasks on the next visit to the area will be a follow up at some of the early sites, just to keep on top of the Gorse menace.
