AKA Operation "Goodbye Pittos"!
We all felt quite satisfied after today's bush restoration morning as we could see that we were making a difference in the Pittosporum jungle. Our plan over the last few years has been not only work on the edge of the Pitto jungle but to poison the pittos in a 'honeycomb' pattern which opens up areas to naturally regenerate. Our system is that we have two teams of drillers and fillers that kill the standing, larger Pittos and the rest of us tackle the smaller ones. Weeping grass, Sweet Bursaria, Native Raspberry, Forest Nightshade, Prickly Currant Bush and Silver & Black Wattles are just some of the native plants we saw regenerating. We are lucky that the native seed bank is still there. Thank you to all the Glenfern Friends that are helping to make the Bushlands such a special place.
