Weeds needing control spotted in the valley

Posted on December 18th, 2017

Add in the comments any weeds you have spotted and where, and whether they just need monitoring to see if they come back or if they need dealing with.

Tammy and Lewie and I went for a weed watch up Tori's fire trail to the ridge, along the fence to the front boundary, and up to the trig station at the top of the mountain. We found senna, tecoma, and one golden rain tree that need herbicide painting. See spreadsheet and map for details, or see one of us. We also found and grubbed out a number of Tropical Soda Apple, right up on the fenceline on the edge of a largeish grass area with lots of razor grass.

Lewie noticed a fairly big camphor laurel below Joe's near the creek, if anyone is up for dealing with it.

The western ridge was relatively weed free. We round a few golden rain trees trackside, and also several white cedar (hard to differentiate). A large camphor laurel on the track down to the dam (which was empty), and we found what we think is Crotalaria pallida Aiton up on the western firetrail in several places. We also found cassia/senna but couldn't identify the variety. On the eastern ridge we grubbed out a large patch of tecoma. Needs rechecking. There are large tecoma on the track borders need poison. Also several golden rain trees that need poisoning.

Camphor below Joe's has been cut but needs poison. We also dug out a metre high camphor up on the eastern firetrail.
