After The Fire – Community Tree Planting Day

10 am Sunday 27 July

We will meet in the Glade. Bring suitable clothing and shoes, a spade and plenty of energy.

The fire in January devastated a large area of the Cave Rock, and many trees and shrubs were burnt. Some of those trees were the Memorial Trees that families had planted over the past years.

 

Auckland Council Parks have provided some native plants (Pohutakawa, Karo and Flax) for the community to start the replanting of the lower slopes of the area. While this might seem a daunting task, as a community we need to get involved with the restoration of the area. Council are keeping a close eye on the regrowth on the slopes, and will be dealing with noxious weeds as required.

 

Any enquiries to John Edgar 8128555 or Caroline Grove 8128760.
