Hacking Team at Zandvlei Nature Reserve – January 2012.

This is a working relationship with the City of Cape Town and the Zandvlei Trust.

Bert took the shortest steepest route up the slope. We took the longest easiest route and it took most of the afternoon to reach the target area to do the work planned. We did not see Bert till it was almost time to go home and he had run out of herbicide. He chopped down plenty of shelters for drinking parties under the Manatoka trees.

It was a hot afternoon fortunately there was a breeze. Sue and Catherine collected arms full of glass bottles from the drinking parties, for recycling. Milan checking the names of the various invasives. This photo of a Spanish Broom plant / tree stump, was about 3.5 metres tall and the largest ever cut down on any of our clearing afternoons. Note it has a dark center similar to a Rooikrans tree. Catherine cleared stems of a large Manatoka tree cut down last month.
