Nelson-Tasman: Dun Mountain Wilding Pine Removal

Forest and Bird will be helping Nelson Nature with the removal of wilding pines from the Dun Mountain mineral belt.   Work will be located about 1½ hr walk up the main Dun Mt track from the south branch of the Maitai River.   For those who haven’t been off track in the mineral belt before, it is thick scratchy scrub.   There is loose rock and it can be steep in places.   Wear long pants and good boots (gaiters helpful too).   We will pull small Douglas fir and if you have a folding saw that will be handy.  Meet at 9am at Maitai Dam carpark.
