Native bush regeneration under way

PHOTO/JADE CVETKOV

With spades at the ready and hats and gumboots on, about 40 volunteers marched out on to the Papawai Farm in Greytown on Saturday and planted about 400 native trees in less than two hours.

The trees were larger than those usually planted with big trees such as kahikatea, rimu, titoki, and totara going in the ground.

Don Bell from Carbon Natural had spot sprayed around the area a few weeks ago to kill the weeds where the trees would go.

The dead grass patches made it easy for those planting to know where to dig their spade in and gave the new plants a good start.

He said it was a great morning and the spot at the end of Tilsons Rd was beautiful.

A farm trustee had baked up a storm of bacon and egg pies and cakes and had hot tea ready for the crew when they were finished.

  1. Why is there no mention why and how those ‘volunteers’ got to be there etc? This article is missing some key points!
