We had a good lesson the week before last. We went to attend to a clump of Madiera vine just at the start of the lower track parallel with the lower sports ground.

A former group had pulled and bagged 6 or 7 black sacks of the vine. They were then left in the spot. Over time they themselves became overgrown. We found the madiera vine had sprouted inside the bags and was forcing its way out of the plastic. Any small tear in the a bag had a series of tendrils emerging. Madiera was fighting back. We fetched a large heavy weed bag and emptied all the black bags into this bag. Hopefully this will stop the Madiera growing and kill it off inside the large bag.

Further up the same slope the covering was thick Tradescantia. Peter and Pat had a go at this area last week. What a feat. We freed Lacebark and Puriri from the onslaught of the Convolvulous and Maderia vines. As well as that we piucked out small Madiera vines to destroy them before they start climbing.

Peter and Pat could not get down to the tool space as the area has been bulldozed to insert a shipping container to hold sports gear. The area has turned into a quagmire and is too slippery to attempt at the moment.

Martin has been away recently, he has to devote part of his time to trapping and planning.  We missed Derek last week. Derek has been doing a sterling job on the fallen trees which were blown down in the recent storm. Hopefully we will all be there tomorrow.
