Mt Vic Bush Regeneration Group
Weedbuster Type: Group
Contact Person: Ellen Blake
We are involved with a native bush regeneration project on Mt Victoria town belt in Wellington. It is on the northern end of Mt Victoria and is supporting native regrowth through the pine and pohutukawa trees currently dominant. We have a great regrowth of mahoe, ake ake, red matipo, karamu and taupata and many other Wellington plants.
The main weeds we remove include karo, ivy, old mans beard, asparagus, agapanthus, and tradescantia. The main focus at the moment however is the nasty eleagnus which Wellington City Council has made great strides with over many years and now is being mopped up on our section of Mt Victoria.
We always welcome new weeders.
