Ongoing work on Derek's Slope. Martin and Derek did the hard bits cutting down the honeysuckle and gorse and carting it down the slope to the residue pile, and Pat did weeding  at the bottom of the slope. A huge pile of drying material at the bottom of the slope.

A blitz was made on emerging gorse seedlings. There suddenly seems to be a lot around.

Keith, a visitor from Canada came to help on the 5th June. Having 3 men on the honeysuckle slope made such a difference. Keith spent the next two weeks planting at Motatapu.

Martin and Pat inspected the area for fallen branches after high winds in the beginning of June.

Sel and Melissa have been helping in the areas infested with Tradescantia.
