Hacking Team at Zandvlei Nature Reserve – March 2011.

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

Bert and I cleared an area of small and large Port Jackson saplings, which made a difference opening a new vista overlooking the vlei. In some places the indigenous shrubs are quite dense with low growth. The ground is very dry now, normal for this time of the year.
The trees we cut down last year have disintegrated to a fraction of the space they took up when we cut them down.
We now have a view across Main Road, and the intersection of Old Boyes Drive, the southern suburbs railway line, Promenade Road and the vlei.

There is evidence of “bergies disused nests” with plenty of junk which we will have to tackle.
