Description

Gorse by a ditch, a poplar (or willow) shelter belt, thick rank grass, and a herbicide sprayed base of a power pole. That's Canterbury farmland.

This shelter belt has been underplanted with kohuhu (Pittosporum tenuifolium) as you can see on the top left.

Description

The two pest plants covering the greatest area along the Whatatiri are gorse and blackberry. The former is often straggly and not a problem along the bush part, but there are large over 2 m high gorse over 50 m or so of the track at about baitline LeA.
