This area I cleared mainly of Asparagus fern, small Coral Trees and Convulvus Vine. A small tree down here. Will cut it up and dispose of. This little area is covered in Indigenous trees. A real find amongst the Exotic trees and shrubs. This tree fell in a storm. It will be pulled out with a 4wd and cut up. A blockage here to be cleared so the creek can flow. Coral Trees to be cleared along with vines and tree down in creek. Coral Trees and Vines again. A minor blockage to be cleared.
